This book engages in an educational reading of the selection of Lefebvre's work that is available in English translation. After introducing Lefebvre's life and works, the book experiments with his concepts and methods in a series of five 'spatial histories' of educational theories. In addition to The Production of Space, these studies develop themes from Lefebvre's other translated works: Rhythmanalysis, The Explosion, the three volumes of Critique of Everyday Life and a range of his writings on cities, Marxism, technology and the bureaucratic state.
