By combining provocative prose with photo-essay, Time and the Suburbs explores the disappearance of cities in North America under the weight of suburban, exurban, and other forms of development that are changing the way we live and do politics. Drawing on social theory from Henri Lefebvre and Guy Debord to Antonio Negri, this book reconceptualizes the tasks facing activists and social movments. This is both a provocative essay and introduction to important social theory for anyone interested in cites and urban development.
Enlightening and at times threatening to the justness of a capitalist society, the book endorses the realistic sanctions that impede upon economic growth as defined by the consumerism model. -- TY Nice, Nexus
