"A superb critical exploration of the underside of utopian thought over the last hundred years and its continuing relevance in the here and now for thinking about possible urban worlds. The treatment of the Situationists and their milieu is a revelation."

-- David Harvey, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology, City University of New York Graduate School

"Visions of the City will quickly become a revered, much-cited and "classic" text."

-- Chris Philo, Professor of Geography, University of Glasgow
