About the book
This book develops a novel and innovative methodological framework for operationalising Henri Lefebvre’s work for empirical research on the U.S. city. Building on ethnographic research on Chicago’s South Side, Tilman Schwarze explores the current situation of urbanisation and urban life in the U.S. city through a critical reading and application of Lefebvre’s writings on space, everyday life, the urban, the state, and difference. Focusing on territorial stigmatisation, public housing transformation, and urban redevelopment, this book makes an important contribution to critical urban scholarship, foregrounding the relevance and applicability of Henri Lefebvre’s work for geographical and sociological research on urban politics and everyday life.
