The work of Henri Lefebvre -- the only major French intellectual of the post--war period to give extensive consideration to the city and urban life -- received considerable attention among both academics and practitioners of the built environment following the publication in English of The Production of Space. This new collection brings together, for the first time in English, Lefebvrea s reflections on the city and urban life written over a span of some twenty years. The selection of writings is contextualized by an introduction -- itself a significant contribution to the interpretation of Henri Lefebvrea s work -- which places the material within the context of Lefebvrea s intellectual and political life and times and raises pertinent issues as to their relevance for contemporary debates over such questions as the nature of urban reality, the production of space and modernity. Writings on Cities is of particular relevance to architects, planners, geographers, and those interested in the philosophical and political understanding of contemporary life.
