Justice Theory', and the development of its definition in spatial terms, is understood from the writings of a number of theorists (Harvey, 1989;Butler, 2007b;Dikeç 2009a;2009b;Fainstein, 2009;Featherstone and Painter, 2012) as contemporary exponents of justice theory in spatial terms. Philosophers such as Lefebvre (Butler, 2012) and Soja (2009) have modernised the concept of justice and spatiality in 'seeking the just city'.

Lefebvre does not see the right to the city as an incremental addition to existing liberal-democratic rights. The City Statute serves as an important inspiration and precedent for groups elsewhere advo-cating a right to the city. Another inspiration is the tradition of human rights

Lefebvre does not see the right to the city as an incremental addition to existing liberal-democratic rights. He sees it as an essential element of a wider political struggle for revolution. CONTEMPORARY INITIATIVES. Before I turn to Lefebvre’s revolutionary vision, however, let me first say something more generally about how the right to the city is conceived. Another inspiration is the tradition of human rights. Here the right to the city is seen as part of the larger project of human rights most associated with the Universal Declaration of the United Nations.

Henri Lefebvre: Spatial politics .

Henri Lefebvre: Spatial politics, everyday life and the right to the city examines, in considerable detail, the philosophical and sociological writings of Lefebvre. Butler selects six themes of Lefebvre's work which he considers most relevant to a critical legal audience. One can only imagine the difficulty in deciding which aspects of Lefebvre's work to incorporate, and which to omit.

While certain aspects of Henri Lefebvre’s writings have been examined extensively within the disciplines of geography, social theory, urban planning and cultural studies, there has been no comprehensive consideration of his work within legal studies. Henri Lefebvre: Spatial Politics, Everyday Life and the Right to the City provides the first serious analysis of the relevance and importance of this significant thinker for the study of law and state power. Introducing Lefebvre to a legal audience, this book identifies the central themes that run through his work, including his unorthodox, humanist approach to Marxist theory, his sociological and methodological contributions to the study of everyday life and his theory of the production of space. These elements of Lefebvre’s thought are explored through detailed investigations of the relationships between law, legal form and processes of abstraction; the spatial dimensions of neoliberal configurations of state power; the political and aesthetic aspects of the administrative ordering of everyday life; and the ‘right to the city’ as the basis for asserting new forms of spatial citizenship. Chris Butler argues that Lefebvre’s theoretical categories suggest a way for critical legal scholars to conceptualise law and state power as continually shaped by political struggles over the inhabitance of space. This book is a vital resource for students and researchers in law, sociology, geography and politics, and all readers interested in the application of Lefebvre’s social theory to specific legal and political contexts.
