About the Book

What is a Global City? Who authorizes the World Class City? This edited volume interrogates the global cities literature, which views the city as a shimmering, financial global network. Through a historical-ethnographic exploration of inter-ethnic relations in the other global cities of Cairo, Beirut, Istanbul, Bukhara, Lhasa, Delhi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Tokyo, the well-known contributors highlight cartographies of the Other Global City. The volume contends that thinking about the city in the longue duree and as part of a topography of interconnected regions contests both imperial and nationalist ways of reading cities that have occasioned the many and particularly violent territorial partitions in Asia and the world.
