'This important, thoughtful and thought-provoking text sets out to develop a radical spatial history of squatting in Berlin. Unapologetically and powerfully committed to exploring the ways the city itself may be thought of as a radical political project, Vasudevan sympathetically but honestly reflects on some of the challenges of sustaining a radical urban politics of squatting over time. Metropolitan Preoccupations is a genuinely innovative contribution to geographical scholarship, opening up ways of thinking about the radical politics of the city.'
—Allan Cochrane, Emeritus Professor of Urban Studies, Open University, UK

'In this deftly-told spatial history of squatting in Berlin, Alexander Vasudevan argues in compelling detail that radical social movements are inseparable from concrete forms of geography- and city-making. Anchored in a grounded and gripping narrative of the practices and struggles through which squatters have co-constituted Berlin as an intense site of urban experimentation and protest, Metropolitan Preoccupations simultaneously lends new historical depth and global connectivity to our understanding of 21st-century "right-to-the-city" movements. It is difficult to imagine a story that more effectively excavates the fundamental importance and the multi-layered meanings of the basic geographical right to be somewhere.'
Matthew Hannah, Professor of Cultural Geography, Universität Bayreuth, Germany
