New publications feature LA Urban Rangers


Three new publications include the Los Angeles Urban Rangers in thoughtful examinations of urban changemakers.

Caroline Dahl, “Stadens väktare,” Stad: Debatt och reflexion om urbana landskap (September 2017), 46-48.

"Blueberries and Roses, life outdoors" is the September 2017 issue of STAD: Debate and reflection on urban landscapes. An illustrated article on the Los Angeles Urban Rangers' approach to understanding the city includes images from our Corporate Peaks and Meadows hikes for "Public Access 101: Downtown L.A."
 

Gordon C.C. Douglas, The Help-Yourself City: Legitimacy and Inequality in DIY Urbanism (Oxford University Press), Feb 2018.

With a critical analysis of DIY tactics, Gordon Douglas contextualizes the LA Urban Rangers approach to the city as he inventories civic engagement and the costs and benefits of people taking pieces of the city into their own hands. 
 

Interboro, The Arsenal of Exlusion & Inclusion (ACTAR Publishers), Dec 2017.

Under the entries "Map" and "Wet Sand," Interboro's compendium of tools and tactics to exclude and include praises our Malibu Public Beaches guide as an "inclusionary" map that empowers public access and elucidates abstract concepts such as the Public Trust Doctrine.
