What are the best articles and books on the complications of urban gentrification? What about the relationship of artists and bohemians to this process?

I am gathering nuanced texts on urban gentrification. Right now, I'm digging through academic sources from anthropology, cultural geography, urban studies, sociology, and the like.
High-protein journalism and popular press would be definitely welcome as well. I'm interested in both gentrification as a phenomenon in general, and more specifically the role of artists in this process.
