Editorial Reviews

Review

A beautifully incendiary book, a book that burns with outrage, erudition, and human engagement . . . and one of the very best analyses of contemporary spatial control that I have seen. --Jeff Ferrell, Professor of Criminal Justice, Texas Christian University

An indispensable analysis of contemporary homelessness and what it means both for those who are homeless and those who are not. It is also a sharply written handbook for resistance to the neoliberal political economy and neo-conservative social order that so efficiently produces not only homelessness, but also fully alienated public spaces and truly perverse social ecologies. --Don Mitchell, Distinguished Professor of Geography, Syracuse University

Randall Amster includes a solid focus on the international dimensions of homelessness and a much needed discussion of the ways in which social spaces have been colonized by business interests and resisted by the marginalized. His work is unique in incorporating discussions of cultural geography, sociology, social space, philosophy, and anarchist politics at an advanced level, moving the discussion of homeless policy beyond the simple case study to global ramifications. --Talmadge Wright, Associate Professor of Sociology, Loyola University-Chicago

About the Author
