The A. seeks to establish a theoretical framework for understanding a facet of class struggle under advanced capitalism. The conflicts which will be scrutinized are those which relate to the production and use of the built environment. The A. argues that capitalist society must of necessity create a physical landscape a mass of humanly constructed physical resources in its own image, broadly appropriate to the purposes of production and reproduction| and that this process of creating space is full of contradictions and tensions and that the class relations in capitalist society inevitably spawn strong crosscurrents of conflict.
