Best Seller Publishing announces the release of Veronica Smith’s new book, “When Communities Disappear: The Unspoken Truths of Community Revitalization Ideologies and Policies in the United States.” It will be available for free download in the Amazon Kindle Store until May 28th.

Over the past several decades, it has grown increasingly clear that many of the United States’ policies and practices created for the purpose of improving the economic conditions and environments of the poor and marginalized are no longer working. In some instances, it appears that such policies have never worked. This begets the question: Who is best suited to determine the needs of the poor and who is obligated to support and sustain those needs?

Economic, political, religious, and social policies are complex. They can also be dangerous when abused or misunderstood. When this occurs, the abuse and misunderstandings can have people advocating and fighting for things they don’t really believe or truly desire. What do I mean? Community revitalization ideologies and policies are built around people and the environment. Such policies have historically been shaped around the perceived needs of poor people. What many people do not realize or have never stopped to consider is that these policies that impact the lives of many people have been constructed from a melting pot of individuals, of people with vastly differing agendas, beliefs, experiences, and opinions—ideologies.

Furthermore, when it comes to things such as displacement, eviction, and gentrification, there are typically three common factors, no matter where on the globe the community may be: poverty, politics, and policy. There is always more to the story than what the average observer may think. The backstory is what ultimately set the stage for this book.

“When Communities Disappear” by Veronica Smith is free and available for download on Amazon for 5 days (5/24/2020 - 5/28/2020) at:

About the Author:

Veronica Smith is a businesswoman, economic philosopher, and self-pro-claimed Master of Community. As the CEO and Founder of Impact Community Partners, Veronica delivers strategic advisory, community, and economic development services to public and private sector clients.

Veronica is an engaged leader in her community who has been mentoring women and girls in the Sacramento region for a decade, given her strong belief that when women are economically and politically empowered, they can transform their own communities.

Veronica has always been infatuated by history and how it impacts the present. Through her 18-plus years working in the economic development field she noticed that many of the greatest economists, philosophers, and policymakers did not look like her. After having the opportunity to work alongside the first African American to serve as Mayor of Sacramento, and several other elected officials at the state and local levels, she was inspired to begin writing to better capture and convey the why as it relates to community growth, decline, and decay. She is very intentional about delivering her writings from a different perspective and vantage point while embedding economics throughout.

Educationally, Veronica holds an MBA from National University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from California State University, Sacramento.
