"One of the best books on squatting in the English language. An immensely useful, wide-ranging, and insightful book about a fascinating part of radical history." Andrej Grubacic, coauthor, "Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical History""
"This is a wonderful and important book. It makes key contributions to how we should think about squatting as well as how we should think about the best way to study social movements. Insightful, provocative, and educational, it provides a broad spectrum of cases and perspectives on squatter movements in Europe." Lynn Owens, author, "Cracking under Pressure: Narrating the Decline of the Amsterdam Squatters' Movement""
"The women and men who organized and occupied the squats in this movement believed that one could change the greater world by intentionally changing the nature of their own daily lives to lives that emphasized anti-capitalist and communitarian values." Ron Jacobs, counterpunch.org"
"The collection is valuable both for the information it provides on this important social-political movement from the late 1960s to the present day and as an example of 'committed scholarship' no attempt is made to understand or justify the legal (or moral) claims of property owners and developers." T.R. Weeks, "CHOICE""
"A fascinating mosaic of urban squatting and autonomous politics in Europe since the 1970s." Geoff Eley, networks.h-net.org"
