Summary
  • "The New Urban Question is an exuberant adventure through our current global urban condition, tracing the connections between radical urban theory and political activism. From Haussmann's attempts to use urban planning to rid nineteenth-century Paris of workers' revolution to the contemporary metropolis, including urban disaster-zones such as downtown Detroit, Merrifield reveals how the urban experience has been profoundly shaped by class antagonism and has been the battle-ground for conspiracies, revolts and social eruptions."--Page 4 of cover
