Graffiti artists, young people, radical environmentalists, and the homeless clash with police on city streets in an attempt take back urban spaces from the developers and Disneyfiers. Drawing on more than two decades of first-hand research, this lively account goes inside the worlds of street musicians, homeless punks, militant bicycle activists, high-risk BASE jump parachutists, skateboarders, outlaw radio operators, and hip-hop graffiti artists to explore the day-to-day skirmishes in the struggle over public life and public space.
