Expulsions

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

An Observer Architecture Book of the Year

Soaring income inequality and unemployment, expanding populations of the displaced and imprisoned, accelerating destruction of land and water bodies: today's socioeconomic and environmental dislocations cannot be fully understood in the usual terms of poverty and injustice, according to Saskia Sassen. They are more accurately understood as a type of expulsion--from professional livelihood, from living space, even from the very biosphere that makes life possible.

"Saskia Sassen's Expulsions describes the global forces that make ever more tenuous and fragile most people's grip on the places where they live."

--Rowan Moore, The Observer

"Coupled with her earlier work, this may be a paradigm breaking/making work."

--Michael D. Kennedy, Contemporary Sociology

"Once again, sociologist Sassen uses her considerable knowledge to think creatively at both the local and global levels...In place of the principle of inclusion in the pre-1980s Keynesian era, the planet is increasingly dominated by a principle of exclusion of people, land, natural resources, and water. Sassen presents a powerful conceptual analysis and an equally powerful and timely call to action."

--M. Oromaner, Choice
