Review

A People's Atlas of Detroit is a remarkable achievement. Not only is Detroit one of the most important cities to understand, but this book includes a multiplicity of forms of knowledge, which, when woven together, tell a powerful story. A People's Atlas of Detroit offers a new model and standard for critical urban geography.-- (07/22/2019)

This book not only works to understand the many ways Detroit has come to help establish the urban fabric of the United States, but does so through a deeply embodied and popular mode of analysis that feels generative well beyond the specifics of the city itself.--Nik Heynen"editor of Annals of the American Association of Geographers and co-director of the Cornelia Walker Bailey Program on Land and Agriculture" (07/22/2019)

Detroit organizing has always been among the smartest, sharpest, and innovative work throughout people's history. This is a project that provides more evidence of this fact-a thoughtful, important resource developed by the people in the very best tradition of community-led and -centered research and analysis. A People's Atlas of Detroit proves once again that if we seek to understand a place, we must break with the extractive practice of traditional 'research' and listen to the people who make it what it is.-- (09/24/2019)

Product Description

Detroit is widely known as the Motor City, but it has also given rise to some of the world's most important urban social movements. Edited by Linda Campbell, Andrew Newman, Sara Safransky, and Tim Stallmann, A People’s Atlas of Detroit narrates the lived experiences of people engaged in political battles central to Detroit's future and that of urban America. This interdisciplinary volume features contributions by over fifty figures from movement-building efforts in Detroit, including activists, farmers, students, educators, scholars, not-for-profit and city government workers, and members of neighborhood block clubs. Developed from a community-based participatory project, the book speaks to the challenges of fighting for land and housing justice, food sovereignty, economic democracy, accountable governance, and the right to the city. A People’s Atlas of Detroit weaves together maps, poetry, interviews, photographs, essays, and stories to critique status quo urban governance while elucidating radical visions for change.

By drawing upon the collective analyses of Detroiters engaged in the front lines of struggle, A People’s Atlas of Detroit argues that it is only by confronting racial injustice and capitalism head-on that communities can overcome the depths of economic and ecological crises afflicting cities today. This innovative collection builds bridges between multiple areas of social activism as well as current scholarship in geography, anthropology, history, and urban studies to inspire communities in Detroit and other cities towards transformative change.
