Description - The Emancipatory City? by Loretta Lees

Who are cities for? What kinds of societies might they most democratically embody? And, how can cities be emancipatory sites? The ambivalent status of urban space in terms of emancipation, democratisation, justice and citizenship is central to recent work in urban geography, 'new' cultural geography, critical geography and postmodern planning, as well as literature on urban social justice, public space and the politics of identity. Seeking alternative and progressive visions of the emancipatory city through an exploration of the tensions and possibilities between the freedoms and constraints offered by the city, the authors of The Emancipatory City? build on this wealth of current perspectives to present an critical analysis of urban experience. With contributions from key theorists and reflections from David Harvey, Ash Amin and Nigel Thrift, The Emancipatory City? offers a critical examination of the city that integrates theory with illustrative, empirical examples.
