About this book

The contributors respond to the absence of critical debate surrounding the ways in which spaces of the city do not merely contain, but also constitute, urban poverty. The volume explores how the spaces of the city actively produce and reproduce urban poverty.

Reviews

“Edited by Charlotte Lemanski and Colin Marx, this book thus highlights the dynamics of space and its interaction with processes of exploitation. It also addresses what are currently implicit spatial aspects of urban poverty. … By promoting the spatial analytical framework that lies at the core of understanding urban poverty, this book calls for ‘a new spatial politics of urban poverty’ and offers a broader range of strategies for poverty reduction available to scholars and policy makers alike … .” (Hannah Keren Lee, E&U, environmentandurbanization.org, March, 2016)
