User Review  - sherief - LibraryThing

Lefebvre is the man, and the selections here show that in addition to being a critic, he was a fairly sophisticated strategist with resepect to cities, state power and space. Thought-provoking pieces outside of the usual norm of critique, as always, and achingly relevant still today. Read full review
