New Book Considers the City from its Periphery


Roger Keils' new book, Suburban Planet: Making the World Urban from the Outside In was recently featured in a yFile article:

"Part of an Urban Futures Series produced by the publisher, Suburban Planet is a compelling response to 20th-century Marxist philosopher and sociologist Henri Lefebvre’s demand not to give up urban theory as the city in its classical form disappears. This new book invites the reader to reconsider the city from its periphery. Keil argues that while the massive wave of present urbanization is often referred to as an 'urban revolution,' most of this startling urban growth worldwide is happening at the margins of cities."
