|Title:||Seeking Spatial Justice – Edward Soja|
|Abstract:||Recensão do livro Seeking Spatial Justice, de Edward Soja.|
In the beginning of his academic career Edward Soja (1940 -2015), an American geographer, focused on African Studies, though he had already been a critic of urban and regional planning, in particular that of the city of Los Angeles. Having paid special attention to the need to provide Geography with new concepts and visions that included perspectives from other fields, Soja aimed to understand reality from a point of view that encompassed each space’s sociological and historical context. At theoretical level, he was highly influenced by reference French authors, such as Foucault and Lefebvre, whose concepts he applies to space and to contemporary challenges while never losing sight of the geographical and territorial perspective.
