Cities for people, not for profit : critical urban theory and the right to the city by Neil Brenner( Book )
14 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 274 libraries worldwide
The worldwide financial crisis has sent shock-waves of accelerated economic restructuring, regulatory reorganization and sociopolitical conflict through cities around the world. It has also given new impetus to the struggles of urban social movements emphasizing the injustice, destructiveness and unsustainability of capitalist forms of urbanization. This book contributes analyses intended to be useful for efforts to roll back contemporary profit-based forms of urbanization, and to promote alternative, radically democratic and sustainable forms of urbanism. The contributors provide cutting-edge analyses of contemporary urban restructuring, including the issues of neoliberalization, gentrification, colonization, "creative" cities, architecture and political power, sub-prime mortgage foreclosures and the ongoing struggles of "right to the city" movements. At the same time, the book explores the diverse interpretive frameworks - critical and otherwise - that are currently being used in academic discourse, in political struggles, and in everyday life to decipher contemporary urban transformations and contestations. The slogan, "cities for people, not for profit," sets into stark relief what the contributors view as a central political question involved in efforts, at once theoretical and practical, to address the global urban crises of our time. Drawing upon European and North American scholarship in sociology, politics, geography, urban planning and urban design, the book provides useful insights and perspectives for citizens, activists and intellectuals interested in exploring alternatives to contemporary forms of capitalist urbanization
Urban movements in a globalising world by Pierre Hamel( Book )
22 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 272 libraries worldwide
Urban social movements have traditionally been seen as being preoccupied with local issues, and as a result have been marginalised in the wider study of social movements. However, the increasing globalisation of cities, the international flows of people, money and policy, have meant that the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global. This collection deals with the transformation of urban movements in these new social, economic and political environments. The book is divided into three sections. The first focuses on the new repertoire of collective action in different urban settings. In the second section, the emphasis is on the economic impact of globalisation on social life and how urban movements have been trying to cope with these changes. The third section assesses the opportunities offered to movements by the economic and social transformations of globalisation. Kim Viborg Andersen; Joan A.

Social movements in the (post- ) neoliberal city by Margit Mayer( Book )
5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 65 libraries worldwide
"Margit Mayer looks at contemporary social movements that contest neoliberal urban development by invoking the Right to the City, a motto originally coined by Henri Lefébvre in the 1960s. Mayer contrasts these new movements to those of previous phases in postwar, political-economic development, and thus establishes a set of correspondences between consecutive urban regimes and shifting forms of contestation. This framework helps to identify the novelty of progressive movements within the (post- )neoliberal city - as well as to explore the scope of meanings attached to their demand for the Right to the City, which has become such a defining feature of current urban struggles not just in the Euro-American core, but around the world. Social Movements in the (Post- )Neoliberal City discusses the implications of the current economic crisis for the Right to the City movements, and speculates about what these movements might imply for designing the (post- )neoliberal city. The Civic City Cahier series intends to provide material for a critical discussion about the role of design for a new social city. It publishes short monographic texts by authors who specialise in urban and design theory and practice"--Publisher's website

Modernisierung der Kommunalpolitik : neue Wege der Ressourcenmobilisierung by Hubert Heinelt( Book )
4 editions published in 1997 in German and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Seit Beginn der 90er Jahre ist von deutschen Kommunalverwaltungen eine Modemisierungskampagne in Gang gesetzt, die von der Kommunalen Ge meinschaftsstelle fUr Verwaltungsvereinfachung (KGSt) und von zahlreichen Untemehmensberatem unterstiitzt, aber von der Politik- und Verwaltungs wissenschaft noch keineswegs systematisch beforscht wird. Ende 1995 expe rimentierten bereits 82 der 84 Gro13st?dte Deutsch1ands mit Elementen eines Neuen Steuerungsmodells, aber noch mangelt es an fundierter empirischer Forschung zu den aktuellen Ver?nderungen im lokalen politisch-administra tiven System und ihren Auswirkungen. Folglich rankt sich eine Fiille von Kontroversen um die Ausrichtung des Neuen Steuerungsmodells, seine Ausgestaltung fiir verschiedene Politikbe reiche, die Redefmition des Verh?ltnisses von Politik und Verwaltung, die Balance von Verwaltungsefflzienz und Demokratie, und die Anwendbarkeit von in avancierteren ausl?ndischen Kommunen gemachten Erfahrungen auf die deutsche Situation. Solange die wissenschaftlichen Beitr?ge prim?! als normative Modemisierungsvorsch1?ge daherkommen, sind diese Kontrover sen kaum produktiv zu entfalten. In letzter Zeit jedoch sind zunehmend auch empirische Begleitprojekte und kritische Analysen verschiedener Bereiche kommunaler Ressourcenmobilisierung begonnen worden. Der Arbeitskreis Lokale Politikforschung innerhalb der Deutschen Vereinigung fiir Politische Wissenschaft initiierte mit seiner Tagung "Ressourcen Lokaler Politik" im Friihjahr 1997 in Harmover eine Diskussion zwischen Akteuren der kommu nalen Verwaltungsreform und Forschem, die empirisch, komparativ und aus I?ndische Forschungsergebnisse nutzend die Entwicklungen und Probleme der deutschen Reformbemiihungen untersuchen. Der vorliegende Band doku mentiert und entwickelt die dort begonnene Diskussion und pr?sentiert somit den aktuellen Stand der bundesrepublikanischen Forschungslage zur Moder nisierung der Kommunalpolitik
