simultaneously a major cause and a potential solution. Across the world, a new wave of urban
social movements is rising to fight against corporate control, social exclusion, hostile
immigration policies, gender oppression, and ecological devastation. These movements are
building economic, social, and political alternatives based on solidarity, equality, and
participation. A fruitful conversation between theory and practice, this book opens new
ground for rethinking systemic urban change in a way that challenges oppression and
transforms how people work, create, and live together.
