Henri Lefebve: Key Writings presents for the first time the full range of Lefebvre's thought. The selection reinforces the centrality of Lefebvre to current debates in social and spatial theory but also sets Lefebvre's work in the context of his broader philosophical and political concerns.The extracts are divided into sections, each separately introduced by the editors: Philosophy and Marxism; Everyday Life and Modernity; The Country and the City; Space, Time and History; Politics. Nearly all the extracts presented here are new translations and most have never appeared in English before.
