Critique of Urbanization

In stock (50 items available)
Urbanisation is transforming the planet, within and beyond cities, at all spatial scales. In this book, Neil Brenner mobilises the tools of critical urban theory to deconstruct some of the dominant urban discourses of our time. Brenner advocates a constant reinvention of the framing categories, methods and assumptions of critical urban theory in relation to the rapidly mutating geographies of capitalist urbanisation. Only a theory that is dynamic -- which is constantly being transformed in relation to the restlessly evolving social worlds and territorial landscapes it aspires to grasp -- can be a genuinely critical theory.
