Cities of the South : citizenship and exclusion in the twenty-first century
By: Wimmen / Drieskens / MermierShare
Major cities worldwide are caught in a whirlwind of change that is turning urban spaces into strategic sites where history is being rewritten. From the Mumbai slums to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, from Dubai's skyscrapers to Palestinian refugee camps, the cities are altering the answers to one of mankind's oldest questions: where do I belong? An important work on contemporary society. Edited by Barbara Drieskens, Franck Mermier, and Heiko Wimmen.
