"Cosmopolis II captures the radical mood of the early 21st century and turns it into a positive project about living in multi-cultural cities. It will appeal to all those struggling with and studying contemporary cities. Beautifully written, clear, authoritative, and enhanced with evocative imagery, the book brings together new ideas, new literature, new cases and new arguments. It is likely to become a core text in the literature on cities and planning very quickly. No other book achieves the synthesis provided here."--Patsy Healey, University of Newcastle
