The relationship between space and politics is explored through a study of French urban policy. Drawing upon the political thought of Jacques Ranciere, this book proposes a new agenda for analyses of urban policy, and provides the first comprehensive account of French urban policy in English. * Essential resource for contextualizing and understanding the revolts occurring in the French 'badland' neighbourhoods in autumn 2005 * Challenges overarching generalizations about urban policy and contributes new research data to the wider body of urban policy literature * Identifies a strong urban and spatial dimension within the shift towards more nationalistic and authoritarian policy governing French citizenship and immigration
