Reimagining the Urban

This book develops a fresh and challenging perspective on the city.
Drawing on a wide and diverse range of material and texts, it
argues that too much contemporary urban theory is based on
nostalgia for a humane, face-to-face and bounded city. Amin and
Thrift maintain that the traditional divide between the city and
the rest of the world has been perforated through urban
encroachment, the thickening of the links between the two, and
urbanization as a way of life.

They outline an innovative sociology of the city that scatters
urban life along a series of sites and circulations, reinstating
previously suppressed areas of contemporary urban life: from the
presence of non-human activity to the centrality of distant
connections. The implications of this viewpoint are traced through
a series of chapters on power, economy and democracy.


This concise and accessible book will be of interest to students
and scholars in sociology, geography, urban studies, cultural
studies and politics.
