Full Description


Transnational Urbanism is a profound work of theoretical synthesis by internationally renowned urban theorist Michael Peter Smith. Moving deftly across disciplines and discursive terrains, Smith forges original and stimulating connections between urban studies and the emerging field of transnational studies. With original and extraordinary insight, he addresses the central question of how and why immigrants, refugees, political activists, and institutions locate and maintain social relations in light of transnational urbanism. * Brings a concrete, historically informed discussion of globalization and transnationalism applied to urban studies. * Offers a blueprint for reconstructing urban theory itself . * Forges stimulating connections between the field of urban studies and the emerging field of transnational studies .
