Stolen City reveals how settler colonialism, as a mode of racial capitalism, has made and remade Winnipeg for the past 150 years, tracing the emergence of a ruling alliance that has installed successive development visions to guarantee its hold on regional wealth and power. Drawing on a rich local tradition of grassroots counter-planning, Stolen City uncovers the persistence of revolutionary visions for the city and the concrete ways oppression is shaped by resistance. It gives particular attention to an ascendant post-industrial vision of Winnipeg's city centre that has renewed colonial 'legacies' of dispossession and racism over the past forty years. In doing so, it moves beyond the common tendency to break apart histories of conquest from studies of urban history or present-day urban dynamics.
