Here's a survey of recent writings on Slum Politics from AlterNet. The reviewer takes some pot shots at my work (I don't know how to react when he says I don't "actually note or promote the development of squatters' political capital" -- as that's an issue that's central to my argument), but I think it's important that the issue of squatters asserting a presence in politics is being aired. Squatters need to organize and engage the system. Only they can determine how their future should look.
