Uses the philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari to interrogate what cities can do

Defining the lives of a majority of the world’s population, the question of ‘the city’ has risen to the fore as one the most urgent issues of our time – uniting concerns across the terrain of climate policies, global financing, localised struggles and multi-disciplinary research.

Reviews

This collection unfolds new urban research. The unlimited city extends to all urban practices: passers-by, tourists, sports players and the homeless who merge with indigenous people, settlers, prostitutes and workers to striate the common local space or resist administrative tasks. Research becomes central to this collective assemblage, transversing between times and hierarchies. A great experiment!

- Anne Querrien, co-editor of the French journal Multitudes and former co-editor of Les Annales de la Recherche Urbaine
