Henri Lefebvre, On the Rural: Economy, Sociology, Geography (University of Minnesota Press, 2022)

On The Rural by Henri Lefebvre coverA collection of previously untranslated writings by Henri Lefebvre on rural sociology, situating his research in relation to wider Marxist work has been published by University of Minnesota Press.

Stuart Elden (PAIS) and Adam David Morton (University of Sydney) have edited Lefebvre’s key works on rural questions, including the first half of his book Du rural à l’urbain and supplementary texts. On the Rural reveals the production of the rural as a key site of capitalist development and as a space of struggle.

The book was translated by Robert Bononno, with one essay each by Matthew Dennis (formerly Warwick Philosophy) and Sîan Rosa Hunter Dodsworth. Stuart and Adam edited the texts, add detailed notes, and wrote a substantial introduction.
