I love how Lefebvre opens up the city and how we look at it, how we study it, how we create it, and most importantly how we live it. This is a good selection of texts, and the only place you can find a translation of The Right to the City, which is a pivotal text in so many ways, and a source of potentially revolutionary thought. It only gets 4 stars however, because the texts themselves are riven with typos, and without having read the original French, I am rather certain that the translation is not at all what it could be...and certainly seems to make an understanding of the central ideas even harder. It definitely doesn't fare well in contrast to State, Space, World.

This is such an important text, and yet the introductory essay by the two translators is so full of typos and grammatical and syntactical errors that one could very easily be put off from going any further. The translation is very shaky throughout. Did anyone at Blackwell even proofread this book? Time for a new translation; The Urban Revolution got a good translation not so long ago, The Right to the City is due a revisit too. It couldn't be more timely.
