On Global Grounds : Urban Change & Globalization Hardback
Edited by Julie Nevarez, Gabriel Moser
On Global combines sound conceptual work and research in specific sites under the rubric of globalization.
It provides the opportunity for scholars, researchers, professors and practitioners to become better acquainted with the different impacts of globalization in contemporary urban environments.
This edited volume approaches the specific changes produced by globalization to a series of urban phenomena such as gentrification, competition among cities to attract capital, networks of urban social relations, modernist architecture in developing countries, the crisis of public space, spectacular events as machines of urban growth, urban form and political conditions, among other phenomena in cities around the world at different stages of development.
Conceptual and analytical overlaps with other books find a different approach to On Global in that its objective is to provide a thorough analysis of globalization by addressing its specific effects in a selection of urban areas around the world rarely presented in an edited volume.
