Abstract: SHARE PUB DATE: October 2020 ISBN: 9781941332634 256 pages FORMAT: Paperback LIST PRICE: $25.00£22.00 ADD TO CART Nights of the Dispossessed Riots Unbound Edited by Natasha Ginwala, Gal Kirn, and Niloufar Tajeri Columbia Books on Architecture and the City MAIN REVIEWS CONTENTS EXCERPT LINKS AWARDS Riots are extraordinary events that have been recurring with increasing frequency and that occupy a highly controversial space in the political imagination. Despite their often negative portrayals, it is undeniable that riots have played a pivotal role in the confrontation between authority and dissent.
