Eyal Weizman
The Roundabout Revolutions

One common feature of the wave of recent revolutions and revolts around the world is not political but rather architectural: many erupted on inner-city roundabouts. In thinking about the relation between protest and urban form, Eyal Weizman starts with the May 1980 uprising in Gwangju, South Korea, the first of the “roundabout revolutions,” and traces its lineage to the Arab Spring and its hellish aftermath. The Roundabout Revolutions is the sixth volume in the Critical Spatial Practice series edited by Nikolaus Hirsch and Markus Miessen.

Eyal Weizman and Fazal Sheikh
The Conflict Shoreline: Colonization as Climate Change in the Negev Desert

This book, with text by theorist Eyal Weizman and photographs by artist Fazal Sheikh, investigates the long history of the use of climate change as a political tool along the threshold of the Negev Desert and its effects on the region’s Bedouin population. The Conflict Shoreline brings together a wide array of materials, ranging from documents, maps, and contemporary photographs to historical aerial imagery, remote sensing data, state plans, court testimonies, and nineteenth-century travelers’ accounts.
