"Locating Right to the City in the Global South, brings together empirically and theoretically rich case studies that contribute to the development of conceptual tools for understanding contemporary urban inequality." - Andy Clarno, University of Illinois at Chicago, City & Community
"While there is a rising appeal for understanding the contexts of global urbanism, this book represents a major concrete step towards this aim, by taking a widely popularized core concept of urban theory and paying extra attention to distinct locations in the Global South." - Fulong Wu, University College London, UK in Urban Studies
