- Coming soon
This collection of short original essays by an interdisciplinary group of cutting-edge urban scholars makes the case for the explicitly comparative analysis of cities. It not only addresses how to compare, but also why we should compare urban life across localities. Comparison is a strategy for expanding the urban imagination as well as theorizing in a globally interconnected age. Indeed, cities are increasingly comparing and ranking themselves as they compete for preeminence in an interconnected world.
