Rethinking Global Urbanism: Comparative Insights from Secondary Cities (Hardback)

£115.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Arguing that the focus in global urban studies on cities such as New York, London, Tokyo in the global North, Mexico City and Shanghai in the developing world, and other major nodes of the world economy, has skewed the concept of the global city toward economics, this volume gathers a diverse group of contributors to focus on smaller and less economically dominant cities. It highlights other important and relatively ignored themes such as cultural globalization, alternative geographies of the global, and the influence of deeper urban histories (particularly those relating to colonialism) in order to advance an alternative view of the global city.

Xiangming Chen is Dean and Director of the Center for Urban and Global Studies and Raether Distinguished Professor of Sociology and International Studies at Trinity College, and Distinguished Professor in the School of Social Development and Public Policy at Fudan University, Shanghai. Ahmed Kanna is Assistant Professor of Anthropology in the School of International Studies at the University of the Pacific and was the Raether Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Urban and Global Studies at Trinity College during 2008-09.
