Strange Places: The Political Potentials and Perils of Everyday Spaces
Strange Places: The Political Potentials and Perils of Everyday Spaces offers a conceptual framework for thinking politically about place and space in an era in which globalization seems to be destabilizing places and transforming spaces at an unprecedented rate and scale. Responding critically to the tendencies within contemporary political theory to dismiss places as inherently confining spaces, author Alexandra Kogl explores the roles that places play in supporting a democratic politics of efficacy and resistance. Using concrete examples and cases, this interdisciplinary work is accessible to a broad scholarly audience, including political theory, urban affairs, geography and sociology scholars. -- Provided by publisher
