Cities and Crisis : New Critical Urban Theory, Hardback Book

Cities and Crisis : New Critical Urban Theory Hardback

Edited by Kuniko Fujita

Part of the Sage Studies in International Sociology series


Recognizing the deep relations between politics, finance, cities and citizens, this book argues for a rejuvenated account of urban theory.

The book emphasises the need to understand the importance of the 2008 global financial crisis and how the crisis affects cities nested in a variety of political economies.

Situating urban theory in the current economic climate, it powerfully illuminates the dynamic between history, theory, and practice.

Stressing how catastrophic social and economic calamities under the crisis lead to reorganised city structures, city life and city policies and hence new urban experience, it calls for theoretical perspectives that can speak to these challenging changes. This groundbreaking title is a must for anyone interested in urban life and its rapid movements.

It will be especially useful for students and researchers in urban sociology, planning, geography, urban and regional development and urban studies
