In his book, Postmetropolis: He breaks up his effort into three parts: Throughout the book he weaves the idea of human spatiality, which is the awareness that every human interaction occurs in space as well as the concept of synekism, edwrad is the condition arising from dwelling together.

Soja uses the city of Los Angeles as his case study throughout the book, and commits extensive portions in Part III to an analysis of the so called Justice Riots and the Rodney King trial.

In his conclusion, he ends with examples of the concept of growth with equity in LA. Soja frames the association of urbanism with the ideas of spatiality and synekism through what he calls the three urban revolutions and views the Postmetropolis transition through the lens of six different urban ideologies: He is critical of terms such as social justice, which has no concrete links to the reality of the urban form.

Rather than social justice, he believes spatial justice is a more apt term because it deals with social, environmental and economic problems as well as showing tangible connections.

The idea of space is intricately linked to any study of urbanism, however, Soja has built up edard a number of his writings the idea that there are multiple ways to look at space.
