By David Harvey, F. De Chiara

Un secolo e mezzo prima che Occupy riempisse le strade e le piazze del mondo, los angeles città moderna period già fucina di idee rivoluzionarie, e fu dallo spazio urbano che soffiarono i primi venti del cambiamento sociale e politico. Da sempre le città sono teatri che mettono in scena il pensiero utopico, ma anche centri di accumulazione capitalistica, e quindi spazi di conflitto contro quei pochi che, controllando l’accesso alle risorse comuni, determinano l. a. qualità della vita di molti. L’urbanizzazione ha giocato un ruolo primario nell’assorbimento del surplus di capitale, alimentando processi di «distruzione creatrice» che hanno sottratto alle masse il diritto di costruire e ricostruire le proprie città. Questo conflitto latente è esploso periodicamente in grandi rivolte popolari, come nella Comune di Parigi del 1871, a seguito della riconfigurazione urbanistica voluta da Napoleone III e realizzata da Haussmann, quando i cittadini espropriati si sollevarono in line with imporre il governo rivoluzionario sulla capitale. O come nel 1968, con i grandi movimenti sociali urbani che agitarono Chicago e Berlino, Praga e Città del Messico, o ancora, nell’estate 2011, con i riots che hanno bruciato le periferie di Londra e con l’ondata di indignazione contro il potere finanziario che ha scosso the United States ed Europa. «Città ribelli», unendo rigore scientifico e passione politica, ripercorre l. a. storia delle città come centri propulsori della lotta di classe e dei movimenti di riappropriazione dei diritti collettivi. Partendo dal saggio cruciale di Henri Lefebvre «Il diritto alla città», David Harvey esplora gli effetti delle politiche neoliberiste sulla vita urbana negli ultimi trent’anni; le modalità con cui los angeles schiavitù del debito immobiliare ha paralizzato il ceto medio, le classi povere e le minoranze; il progressivo restringimento dello spazio pubblico in line with los angeles cittadinanza a vantaggio delle cattedrali del company. according to approdare, infine, al quesito fondamentale: in che modo, in tempi di crisi, possiamo riorganizzare le città perché siano socialmente ed ecologicamente più giuste?

Rev. (Boston, 1865), p. 344. 8. Philip H. Ennis, Criminal Victimization in the United States, A Report of a Research Study Submitted by the National Opinion Research Center to the President's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1967), pp. 4 2 , 44. 1 per cent of such cases was an arrest made - in the others, the victim did not want to press charges. " The officer knows he has no authority to throw husbands out of their homes and he tells her so.

The police are not in any of these senses profeSSionals. They acquire most of their knowledge and ·skill on the job, not in separate academies; they are emphatically subject to the authority of their superiors; they have no serious professional society, only a union-like bargaining agent; and they do not produce, in systematic written form, new knowledge about their craft. 21 In sum, the order-maintenance function of the patrolman defines his role and that role, which is unlike that of any other occupation, can be described as one in which sub-professionals, working alone, exercise wide discretion in matters of utmost importance (life and death, honor and dishonor) in an environment that is apprehensive and perhaps hostile.

About one fifth required the officer to gather information ("get a report") about an alleged crime for which no suspect was thought still to be on the scene. The patrolman's function in this case is mainly clerical- he asks routine questions, inspects the premises, and fills out a form. About a third of the calls were for services that could as easily be provided - and in many cities are - by a different government agency or by a private firm. Only about one tenth of the calls afforded, even potentially, an opportunity to perform a narrow law enforcement function by stopping a burglary in progress, catching a prowler, making an arrest of a suspect being held by.
