Cities

by Ash Amin | 22 March 2002
PAPERBACK
Category: Popular Sociology
Synopsis
This book develops a fresh and challenging perspective on the city.Drawing on a wide and diverse range of material and texts, itargues that too much contemporary urban theory is based onnostalgia for a humane, face-to-face and bounded city. Amin andThrift maintain that the traditional divide between the city andthe rest of the world has been perforated through urbanencroachment, the thickening of the links between the two, andurbanization as a way of life. They outline an innovative sociology of the city that scattersurban life along a series of sites and circulations, reinstatingpreviously suppressed areas of contemporary urban life: from thepresence of non-human activity to the centrality of distantconnections. The implications of this viewpoint are traced througha series of chapters on power, economy and democracy. This concise and accessible book will be of interest to studentsand scholars in sociology, geography, urban studies, culturalstudies and politics. .
