Soja_Seeking coverSeeking Spatial Justice, by Urban Planning Distinguished Professor Emeritus Edward Soja, has been awarded one of the three Honorable Mentions for the Paul Davidoff prize, one of the most prestigious honors in the academic planning field.


In Seeking Spatial Justice, Edward W. Soja argues that justice has a geography and that the equitable distribution of resources, services, and access is a basic human right. Building on current concerns in critical geography and the new spatial consciousness, Soja interweaves theory and practice, offering new ways of understanding and changing the unjust geographies in which we live.

"When one of the leading urban theorists in the world brings his thinking to bear on the meaning of contemporary urban social movements the result is this brilliant book that shows that another city is possible and explores the ways to achieve it."
—Manuel Castells, Professor Emeritus of City Planning, University of California, Berkeley
