'City of the Future' : Built Space, Modernity and Urban Change in Astana, Paperback / softback Book

'City of the Future' : Built Space, Modernity and Urban Change in Astana Paperback / softback

Part of the Integration and Conflict Studies series

Description

Astana, the capital city of the post-Soviet Kazakhstan, has often been admired for the design and planning of its futuristic cityscape.

This anthropological study of the development of the city focuses on every-day practices, official ideologies and representations alongside the memories and dreams of the city's longstanding residents and recent migrants.

Critically examining a range of approaches to place and space in anthropology, geography and other disciplines, the book argues for an understanding of space as inextricably material-and-imaginary, and unceasingly dynamic - allowing for a plurality of incompatible pasts and futures materialized in spatial form.
