ABOUT THIS BOOK
response to a dire social need, but also served as a key lever for building socialism and liberalism. Zooming into the interplay between ideologies and the production of space, this book shows that ideologies are never simply ‘written’ into space, but that their meaning is made and re-made, negotiated and contested, and sometimes cunningly subverted in and through space.
