This chapter reviews the main points made in the last six chapters, including the right to the city, which is considered to be the right to live in city spaces. It introduces three different main ideas explored throughout the book. The first is that the experience of urban life and the state in Brickfields usually occurred in the rift that comes between formal legality and local understandings of relatedness and justice. The second is that the local Brickfields residents as a result of the scale and pace of efforts to change the neighborhood tried to start existing modes of ethical living within the community. The third and last thesis is that the members of this community tried to pursue other ways of engagement with the state. This chapter emphasizes a new understanding of the ways urban spaces are comprised, imagined, and inhabited.
