About the Book

Rescaling Urban Poverty discloses the hidden dynamics of state rescaling that ensnares homeless people at the fringes of mainstream society and housing regimes.

  • Explains the oppressive effects of rescaling and its limits in the interplay of the state, domiciled society, public space, class formation, social movements, and capitalism
  • Uses ethnography as the re-ontologizing medium of critical theorization in Lefebvrean, Gramscian, and Marxian strands
  • Develops rich context-based arguments of homelessness, policy, and social movements in Japan
  • Discloses the radical geographies of placemaking, commoning, and translation that can create prohomeless urban environments under rescaling
  • Refines the method of abstraction to broaden the international scope of critical literatures and links different scholarly standpoints without obscuring disagreements
