Contesting Neoliberalism: Urban Frontiers

Contesting Neoliberalism: Urban Frontiers


Neoliberalism's "market revolution"--realized via practices like privatization, deregulation, financial devolution, and workfare programs--has had a transformative impression on modern towns. the results of market-oriented politics for city lifestyles were broadly studied, yet much less awareness has been given to how grassroots teams, nongovernmental companies, and innovative urban administrations are struggling with again. In case stories written from quite a few theoretical and political views, this e-book examines how struggles round such concerns as cheap housing, public prone and area, local sustainability, dwelling wages, employees' rights, reasonable exchange, and democratic governance are reshaping city political geographies in North the USA and round the world.
