Manchester University Press

Homes and entire neighbourhoods are increasingly organised around defensive principles, the rise of gated homes and the domestic fortress itself are architectural motifs that have become normalised in many suburbs and districts. Taken together these shifts mean that a more prickly and defended form of homeownership has arisen in which the result is the endgame of a neoliberalism that penetrates the innermost civic and domestic spheres of our lives.
