When Henri Lefebvre published The Urban Revolution in 1970, he sketched a research itinerary on the emerging tendency towards planetary urbanization. Today, when this tendency has become reality, Lefebvre’s ideas on everyday life, production of space, rhythmanalysis and the right to the city are indispensable for the understanding of urbanization processes at every scale of social practice. This volume is the first to develop Lefebvre’s concepts in social research and architecture by focusing on urban conjunctures in Barcelona, Belgrade, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Dhaka, Hong Kong, London, New Orleans, Nowa Huta, Paris, Toronto, São Paulo, Sarajevo, as well as in Mexico and Switzerland. With contributions by historians and theorists of architecture and urbanism, geographers, sociologists, political and cultural scientists, Urban Revolution Now reveals the multiplicity of processes of urbanization and the variety of their patterns and actors around the globe.

Review:

'Lefebvre's thought has perhaps never been more important than today as urban insurgencies around the world are reshaping the politics of planetary urbanization and announce a new urban revolution. This book is truly a milestone in actualizing Lefebvre for our contemporary urban condition.'Erik Swyngedouw, University of Manchester, UK

'Henri Lefebvre's approach to the production of urban space continues to inspire radical theory and research in relation to diverse conditions, transformations and struggles in cities around the world. This book offers powerful evidence that the theories and concepts developed by Lefebvre may be productively mobilized to illuminate major dimensions of contemporary urbanization processes. As this volume assertively demonstrates, Lefebvre's work remains an essential resource for contemporary forms of critical urban theory - and praxis.'Neil Brenner, Harvard University, USA
