Urban Desires and Lust for Land South

Eric Denis


In the Global South, vast swathes of periurban and agricultural land are being sold off and converted into financial windfalls. Éric Denis shows that the working classes also play a role in this commodification of land, giving rise to new means of producing the city. Moreover, this lust for land reveals these populations’ desire to see the city expand and reach their doorstep.
