Hatherley on Harvey

Owen Hatherley, writing for the Guardian, reviews David Harvey’s new book, Rebel Cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution:

[Harvey] returns time and again to a critique of “horizontalism”, a “fetish of organisational form” that too often remains at small-is-beautiful, an almost narcissistic concern with process and personal interaction over wide-scale action, something that “can work for small groups but (is) impossible at a scale of a metropolitan region, let alone for the 7 billion people who now inhabit planet Earth”.

Sounds interesting.
