Just when we need it most, urban theory seems to be failing us. This book explains why we need it.(Jamie Peck)
Harding and Blokland address the vaunted "crisis" in urban theory with a thoughtful assessment of extant theories in terms of performance, commensurability, and critical engagement. In a conversational and lively tone, they view theories of inequality, public space, identity, power, agency, and culture through the lens of "relaxed urban theory." Excellent overview for scholars and engaging classroom material.(Susan E. Clarke)
