My first reaction is:
If this is a popular or personal interest thing, Masterfile Premier at public libraries may help [gentrification and florida] [gentrification and miami] etc.

On the Web, will help with state as well as federal sites and even some documents. is worth a try, though it may require broader searches: [social and justice and florida] gets only 2 hits. Using quotes to search ["social justice" and florida] gets no hits.

If this is for a college or even high school project, I would try databases such as Academic Search, SocIndex (or Sociological Abstracts at many colleges), Social Sciences Citation Index, Business Source Premier, Factiva, and Lexis Academic.

This is WELL worth a try in Google Books. Even if you find no "full view" (no copyright restrictions) books, you will get page numbers to try in the limited view books - which you can search in your own library if it's a big one. Or if you have to depend on a small library to get books for you on ILL, try Open Worldcat will even tell you the mileage to the nearest libraries that have a book - and in MANY cases will let you click on those library names so you don't have to hunt around for each one's catalog to see if the book is checked out.


Miami Workers Center

The Data Center has internet links designed specifically to search out
