Summary

"Much of the literature on the city has focused on the city as a possible utopia. However, as this work demonstrates, cities are ambiguous sites of expression, emancipation, democracy, justice, and citizenship. The Emancipatory City? interrogates ideas from the writings of Marx, Simmel, Benjamin, Foucault, Lefebvre and de Certeau through an audit of the modern to the postmodern city as a space of flows, networks and intricacies." "With contributions from key theorists and reflections from David Harvey, Ash Amin and Nigel Thrift, this book offers a critical examination of the city that integrates theory with illustrative, empirical examples. It will be a key resource for students and researchers in Urban Studies and Urban Geography."--BOOK JACKET.
