In this book Krzysztof Nawratek explores the possibility of a post-capitalist city, and in so doing, reclaims and develops the idea of total mobilisation as originally formulated by Ernst Ju nger. Nawratek formulates the idea of `accumulation of agency' the ability to act, to replace the logic of capital accumulation as a main driver of urban development. He argues that this `accumulation of agency' operates already in contemporary cities, and should not be seen as essential element of capitalism, but as a conceptual gateway to a post-capitalist world.
Dr Krzysztof Nawratek is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Sheffield. He published City as a Political Idea (2011), Holes in the Whole: Introduction to the Urban Revolutions (2012), Radical Inclusivity: Architecture and Urbanism (2015), Urban Re-Industrialization (2017) as well as several papers and chapters in edited volumes.
