Abstract:

This book rethinks the city by examining its various forms of collectivity - their atmospheres, modes of exclusion and self-organization, as well as how they are governed - on the basis of a critical discussion of the notion of urban commons. The idea of the commons has received surprisingly little attention in urban theory, although the city may well be conceived as a shared resource. Urban Commons: Rethinking the City offers an attempt to reconsider what a city might be by studying how the notion of the commons opens up new understandings of urban collectivities, addressing a range of questi.
