Capital Dilemma: Growth and Inequality in Washington, D.C.
Director of the SPA's Metropolitan Policy Center Derek Hyra is co-editor of the newly released book, Capital Dilemma: Growth and Inequality in Washington, DC, which details the forces driving the contemporary economic growth of the nation’s capital. While this book argues that federal and city political decisions relate to Washington’s recent rebirth, it carefully connects this development to rising inequality and widespread gentrification. The book, co-edited by Sabiyha Prince, exposes the complexities, challenges, and opportunities associated with modern day urban development.
This volume is distinct in that it applies a unique interdisciplinary approach, incorporating historical, sociological, anthropological, economic, geographic, political, and linguistic frameworks, to comprehensively explain the monumental changes taking place in one of the world’s most important cities. It also highlights how unequal contemporary development outcomes relate to preexisting inequalities established mainly along race and class lines.
