MEDIA REVIEWS

"Sutton and Kemp provide a renewed understanding of the role of placemaking in the struggle for racial justice. They offer a way forward beyond paralyzing debate on reshaping our cities and regions, with new tools and roles for community and city building professionals. This is a profoundly hopeful book . . . picks up where Jane Jacobs left off." - Carl Anthony, Breakthrough Communities

"The Paradox of Urban Space makes a great leap forward in our theorizing about place. Through scholarly explorations of marginalization and resistance, this book opens up the transformative actions that might relieve us of the universal burdens of oppression. It deserves careful reading by all concerned about the future of our cities and our democracy." - Mindy Thompson Fullilove, MD, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Sociomedical Sciences, New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University
