BeschreibungAnthropological perspectives are not often represented in urban studies, even though many anthropologists have been contributing actively to theory and research on urban poverty, racism, globalization, and architecture. Theorizing the City corrects this omission by presenting twelve cross-cultural case studies focusing on the analysis of space and place.Five images of the city -- the divided city, the contested city, the global city the modernist city, and the postmodern city -- serve as the framework for the selected essays. These images highlight current research trends in urban anthropology, such as poststructural studies of race, class, and gender in the urban context; political economic studies of transnational culture; and studies of the symbolic and social production of urban space and planning.
