Contests over 'public space' have come to assume increasing centrality in deliberations over urban policy in post-industrial nations such as Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This innovative, single-authored book addresses the relationship between publicness and the city, considering how the production, management and regulation of 'public spaces' have emerged as a problem for urban politics and urban theory. Drawing on original, empirical research, this book presents a series of detailed case studies that explores the struggle for space in different forms of publicness, from political protesters seeking to use the grounds around Parliament House in Canberra, to young people hanging out on the streets of inner city Perth and writing graffiti in Sydney. "Publics and the City" is a timely and critical examination of the relationship between urbanism, publicness, and democracy.
