Five case studies combine structural and historical analysis of the moves of powerful social interests to dominate space, with an ethnographically grounded account of the tactics and strategies developed by various marginalized social groups to reclaim dominated space for their own uses. They include struggles of homeless people in Ann Arbor and Chicago, ethnic displacement in New York and among Mexican farm workers in California, and women in New Orleans.
