Rebel Cities : From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution, Paperback / softback Book

Rebel Cities : From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution Paperback / softback

Description

Long before Occupy, cities were the subject of much utopian thinking.

They are the centers of capital accumulation as well as of revolutionary politics, where deeper currents of social and political change rise to the surface.

Do the financiers and developers control access to urban resources or do the people?

Who dictates the quality and organization of daily life?

Rebel Cities places the city at the heart of both capital and class struggles, looking at locations ranging from Johannesburg to Mumbai, from New York City to S o Paulo.

Drawing on the Paris Commune as well as Occupy Wall Street and the London Riots, Harvey asks how cities might be reorganized in more socially just and ecologically sane ways--and how they can become the focus for anti-capitalist resistance.
