Henri Lefebvre key writings by Henri Lefebvre ( )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Henri Lefebvre is now recognized as one of the most influential social theorists of the Twentieth Century. In English, his writings on cities, everyday life, and the production of space have become hugely influential across Cultural Studies, Sociology, Geography and Architecture. 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; The Critique of Everyday Life; The Country and the City; History, Time and Space; Politics. Nearly all the extracts presented here are new translations and most have never appeared in English before. Henri Lefebvre (1901 - 1991) held a range of academic posts both in France and America and wrote over seventy books including The Production of Space and Critique of Everyday Life

Globalization : theory and practice by Eleonore Kofman ( Book )
30 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Globalization and the issues of power and identity arising from this phenomenon have become central concerns of international studies, whether viewed from political economy, spatial or cultural perspectives." "For the first time, a multi-disciplinary group of international scholars interrogates key assumptions about globalization in theory and practice. Using a range of expert knowledge, their arguments prove that this phenomenon can be understood only through detailed assessment of the processes and discourses associated with it. Gender, identity, citizenship and migration are major themes. Contributors also investigate, from contrasting perspectives, the changing nature of the state and implications for theorizing about it." "This collection provides a powerful new context for debates about globalization, through its identification of both continuities and new concerns, and demonstrates the cross-disciplinary imperatives for investigating these areas. The authors are from the fields of international relations, international political economy, and political and cultural geography. The book will be of interest to the growing multi-disciplinary audience interested in globalization, including those in cultural, media and communications studies, gender studies, sociology and social theory, development studies, and business studies."--BOOK JACKET

The selection of writings is contextualized by an introduction - itself a significant contribution to the interpretation of Henri Lefebvre's work - which places the material within the context of Lefebvre's intellectual and political life and times and raises pertinent issues as to their relevance for contemporary debates over such questions as the nature of urban reality, the production of space and modernity."--pub. desc
