“One of the best books on squatting in English language. An immensely useful, wide-ranging, and insightful book about a fascinating part of radical history. PM Press has finally made it possible for American activists to understand the hidden history of housing.“
—Andrej Grubacic, coauthor of Wobblies and Zapatistas: Conversations on Anarchism, Marxism and Radical History

“This is a wonderful and important book. It makes key contributions to how we should think about squatting as well as how we should think about the best way to study social movements. Insightful, provocative, and educational, it provides a broad spectrum of cases and perspectives on squatter movements in Europe.“
—Linus Owens, author of Cracking under Pressure
