    It s hard to know where I stand on this one.Here we have two cogent theorists, working together, who have done some research, have some decent ideas about how cities function, and yet have produced a book with some remarkably empty headed ideas about the modern city I suppose they wanted to reverse the gloom and doom of previous Marxist denunciations So they politicize the personal into nonsense, veering dangerously close to Richard Florida levels of vapidity.Books like this remind me of how Deleuzean thought gets much abused Some Deleuzean thinkers viz Soja, Negri employed it for liberation Others become stooges of neoliberalism Soja, Cresswell, and Massey are all better postmodernist interpreters of space ...
