Long before the Occupy movement, modern cities had already become the central sites of revolutionary politics, where the deeper currents of social and political change rise to the surface.

Consequently, cities have been the subject of much utopian thinking.

But at the same time they are also centers of capital accumulation and the front line for struggles over who controls access to urban resources and who dictates the quality and organization of daily life.

Is it the financiers and developers or the people? Rebel Cities places the city at the heart of both capital and class struggles, looking at locations ranging from Johannesburg to Mumbai, from New York City to Sa o Paulo.

Drawing on the Paris Commune as well as Occupy Wall Street and the London Riots, Harvey asks how cities might be reorganized in more socially just and ecologically sane ways - and how they can become the focus for anti-capitalist resistance.
