9780415933162: Unsettling the City: Urban Land and the Politics of Property

Short and accessible, this book interweaves a discussion of the geography of property in one global city, Vancouver, with a more general analysis of property, politics, and the city.

Review:

"This book makes a compelling argument for the importance of understanding the ways that hegemonic understandings of property underwrite gentrification and urbanism more generally. But it also unsettles our understanding of private property by elaborating a plethora of already-existing examples that reside somewhere between public and private: from ocean waves to community gardens. Blomley makes a powerful argument about the expansionary potential of community property rights and gives us compelling conceptual tools for fighting hegemonic meanings of property. This book is a wonderful antidote to the 'death of public space' literature, which is not only depressing but debilitating."
-Geraldine Pratt, University of British Columbia and co-editor of "Dictionary of Human Geography
"A book on urban domestic and commercial property ownership is long overdue in critical geography. In "Unsetting the City, Blomley skillfully shows us how urban land is controlled legally, but also ordinarily: an obvious geography we rarely appreciate with much theoretical depth. This fine book interrogates that banality of owning urban land through critiques of capitalism and liberal democracy, showing us just how powerful and diffuse this--literally--'political geography' is to maintaining injustice and inequality in the city."
-Michael Brown, University of Washington and author of "RePlacing Citizenship: AIDS Activism and Radical Democracy
..."a significant contribution to a multiperspectival understanding of the important Vancouver experience..""
no.145
