About the Author

Andy Merrifield is an independent scholar based in the United Kingdom and France. His books include Magical Marxism: Subversive Politics and the Imagination, The Wisdom of Donkeys: Finding Tranquility in a Chaotic World, Metromarxism: A Marxist Tale of the City, and Dialectical Urbanism.


Dip into any page of Merrifield's idiosyncratic and learned commentary on urbanity and politics and you'll take away memorable insights. Henri Lefebvre would surely have approved of this fulsome effort to extend and recalibrate his thoughts.

--Andrew Ross "author of Bird on Fire: Lessons from the World's Least Sustainable City "

What happens when you scale up the familiar to the planetary level? Unexpected alignments and shocking truths come into focus. The spaces for citizenship and the spaces for poverty take on shape, as do the spaces of power and indifference. This is a great little book.

--Saskia Sassen "Cities in a World Economy "
