"This Critical Cities is a powerful rare paradigm. It is a collection of thoughts by a variety of writers who have captured core ideas about cities and how cities connect to everything. I love how the book cuts to the bone by daring to exhibit how everything relates to "the thieving world and the robbed world". It tears up the polite curtains of the theatre of colonialism and its white supremacist terrorism, oppression, and genocide. That alone shakes you to a clear place in reality.These writers bring us subjects that we thought we understood. They bring us subjects and ideas torn to their naked form from their false or pretentious packaging. The writings force us to do a lot of hard rethinking of our perceptions of cities and what sustains them in the fashion that we know them." Olin Tezcatlipoca, founder of the Mexica Movement for the indigenous liberation of Anahuac
Critical Cities is a thought-provoking, head-on confrontation with the Urban Industry. Volume 4 in this series of rigorous engagements with concepts of a 'city' is organised into three sections: 'The Urban Industry: Mass Murder, Theft and Impoverishment', 'The Robbed World & The Making of Modern Cities' and 'How To Empty A City'.
Critical Cities mixes articles, conversations and visual essays foregrounding the voices and perspectives of resistance. Transformative insight is provided into multiple urban contexts including Lima, Lavasa, London, Addis Ababa, Cusco, Seattle, Genoa, Vancouver and Johannesburg. Written with passion and brio by contributors from many disciplines, it's an unequivocal challenge to status quo understandings of cities.
