With a focus on urbanism from the mid-twentieth to the early twenty-first century, this volume explores how questions of housing continue to raise a series of vexing issues surrounding rights, identity, and governance in the modern city. Contributors analyze the ways in which homeownership and other types of housing tenure embody suppositions about the nature of the urban order, including the rights of citizenship, ideologies of nation, and forms of spatial development and planning. Presenting finely detailed case studies - such as analyses of urbanism in the Soviet Union, the post-Katrina reconstruction of New Orleans, and squatting in contemporary Lima - the volume underscores the significance of the housing question in a wide range of contexts. An interdisciplinary project, it develops a perspective that draws from specialists in architecture, sociology, anthropology, history, and geography. Illuminating ruptures and continuities between high modernist and neoliberal urbanism, the book demonstrates how housing and the dilemmas surrounding it are central to modern forms of governance.
