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, the book powerfully illuminates the dynamic between history, theory, and practice stressing how catastrophic social and economic calamities under the crisis lead to - or not lead to - reorganise city structures, city life and city policies and hence new urban experience calls for theoretical perspectives that can speak to these challenging changes. Innovative, crisp and groundbreaking, this 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.
