Cities and Inequalities in a Global and Neoliberal World, Hardback Book

Cities and Inequalities in a Global and Neoliberal World Hardback

Edited by Faranak Miraftab, David Wilson, Ken Salo

Part of the Routledge Studies in Urbanism and the City series

Description

Cities continue to be key sites for the production and contestation of inequalities generated by an ongoing but troubled neoliberal project. Neoliberalism's onslaught across the globe now shapes diverse inequalities -- poverty, segregation, racism, social exclusion, homelessness -- as city inhabitants feel the brunt of privatization, state re-organization, and punishing social policy.

This book examines the relationship between persistent neoliberalism and the production and contestation of inequalities in cities across the world.

Case studies of current city realities reveal a richly place-specific and generalizable neoliberal condition that further deepens the economic, social, and political relations that give rise to diverse inequalities.

Diverse cases also show how people struggle against a neoliberal ethos and hence the open-endedness of futures in these cities.
