The ideas of Henri Lefebvre on the production of urban space have become increasingly useful for understanding worldwide post-industrial city transformation.
This important book uses new international comparative research to engage critically with Lefebvre's spatial theories and challenge recent thinking about the nature of urban space.
Meticulous research in Vancouver, Lowell MA and Manchester, England, explains how urban public spaces, including differential space, are contested and socially produced.
Spatial coalitions, counter-representations and counterprojects are seen as vital elements in such processes.
The book contributes critically to the post-industrial city comparative analysis literature.
It provides an accessible guide for those who care about cities, public space, city planning and urban policy.
This interdisciplinary book will be of interest to academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of urban: geography, planning, policy, politics, regeneration and sociology.
It will also be relevant for politicians, policy makers and urban activists.
