Henri Lefebvre Key Writings

by Henri Lefebvre

Part of the Athlone Contemporary European Thinkers S. Series

Henri Lefebvre Key Writings Synopsis

Henri Lefebvre is now recognised as one of the most influential social theorists of the Twentieth Century. In English, his writings on cities, everyday life, and the production of space have become hugely influential across cultural studies, sociology, geography, and architecture. Henri Lefebve: Key Writings presents for the first time the full range of Lefebvre's thought. The selection reinforces the centrality of Lefebvre to current debates in social and spatial theory but also sets Lefebvre's work in the context of his broader philosophical and political concerns. The extracts are divided into sections, each separately introduced by the editors. Nearly all the extracts presented here are new translations and most have never appeared in English before. Stuart Elden is Lecturer in Political Geography at the University of Durham. Elizabeth Lebas is Senior Lecturer in the History of Art and Architecture at Middlesex University. Eleonore Kofman is Professor of Human Geography at Nottingham Trent University.
