Recapturing democracy : neoliberalization and the struggle for alternative urban futures Author: Mark Purcell Publisher: New York : Routledge, Combining an original argument with a number of case studies, Mark Purcell explores the condition of democracy in contemporary Western cities.
Whereas many scholars focus on what Purcell calls "procedural democracy"--I.
Neoliberalism, which advocates a diminished role for the state and increasing power for mobile capital, has diminished substantive democracy in recent times, he argues. He looks at case studies where this has occurred and at others that show how neoliberalism can be resisted in the name of substantive democracy. Ultimately, he utilizes Henri Lefebvre's notion of "the right to the city," which encompasses substantive as well as procedural democracy for ordinary urban citizens.

Purcell, M. New York: Routledge.
According to him, dynamic cities are becoming increasingly unequal, segregated, unhealthy and oppressive under neoliberalism. He argues that through democratic attitudes and the pursuit of radical democratization we can resist the pervasive neoliberal agenda. Supra and subnational scales are replacing its function and interacting freely. Geographical competitive clusters are needed in the global economy. As mentioned earlier, under glocalization, the functions and powers of the state have been transferred to other scales, supra or subnational.
In addition to up and down scaling, there has been a trend of outsourcing state functions. As a result, ad hoc and special purpose entities have been proliferating.
For Purcell, neoliberalization is a reassertion of an old neoclassical economic argument under which society functions best within market logic compared to any other. It proposes that open and competitive markets produce most efficient allocation of resources, innovation and economic growth.
Therefore, market logic and competitive discipline should be promoted and the state should get out of the way. Purcell points out that neoliberalism is not an economic policy but an on going ideology. In contrast, he opposes neoliberalism with the Keynesian economic policy regime where the state played a strong role controlling and regulating society and markets, and promoting and redistributing wealth.
Additionally, Purcell outlines the main features under which neoliberalization works. The laissez-faire idea minimizes the regulation of economic activity. Welfare retrenchment programs are considered uncompetitive.
The aidez-faire comprises a direct assistance to the capital. And finally, disciplining is an indirect assistance to capital. Purcell presents the idea that neoliberalization is looking for means to legitimize and reduce the inequality it promotes. In chapters 2 and 3, Purcell strongly advocates resisting neoliberal claims to democracy and their definition of it.
