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 .

The formation of transnational urban spaces is a relevant and challenging field of interdisciplinary research, which deserves much more debate in order to deepen our understanding of generating and restructuring urban spaces under conditions of contemporary globalisation processes. This edited collection reflects current studies on the relation of transnationalism and urbanism. Scholars from disciplines including Geography, Ethnography and Urban Planning discuss theoretical approaches, methodology and case studies on processes of the production of urban spaces through global economic value chains, socio-cultural practices, and political governance strategies. Cities are appropriate sites for an examination of the spatial dimension of transnationality because this is where global processes are concentrated, localized, transformed and materialize. In this context, urban space is not merely to be regarded as a setting for transnational practices, but as a constituent force of transnationalism in all its manifestations.

With contributions from some of Canada's leading historians, political scientists, geographers, anthropologists, and sociologists, this collection examines the transnational practices and identities of immigrant and ethnic communities in Canada. It looks at why members of these groups maintain ties with their homelands -- whether real or imagined -- and how those connections shape individual identities and community organizations. How does transnationalism establish or transform geographical, social, and ideological borders? Do homeland ties affect what it means to be "Canadian"? Do they reflect Canada's commitment to multiculturalism? Through analysis of the complex forces driving transnationalism, this comprehensive study focuses attention on an important, and arguably growing, dimension of Canadian social life. This is the first collection in Canada to provide a comprehensive and interdisciplinary examination of transnationalism. It will appeal to scholars and students interested in issues of immigration, multiculturalism, ethnicity, and settlement.

This book brings together a series of new and historical case studies to show how different phases of globalization are transforming the built environment. Taking a broad interdisciplinary approach, the author draws on sociological, geographical, cultural and postcolonial studies to provide a critical account of the development of three key concepts: global culture, post colonialism, and modernity. Subsequent case studies examine how global economic, political and cultural forces shape the forms of architectural and urban modernity in globalized suburbs and spaces in major cities worldwide. The first book to combine global and postcolonial theoretical approaches to the built environment and to illustrate these with examples, Spaces of Global Cultures argues for a more historical and interdisciplinary understanding of globalization: one that places material space and the built environment at the centre and calls for new theories to address new conditions.

Pigeon Reader is inspired by Georges Perec's thoughts on reading, which he likened to 'a pigeon pecking at the ground in search of breadcrumbs'.Morris' intervention oscillates between the obvious and the indecipherable, the trivial or the commonplace and the strange and the unexpected; between sense and non-sense, logic and absurdity, simplicity and abstruseness; between what the artwork shows and what it says. Pigeon Reader is an intervention in a precise facsimile edition of Perec's book, Species of Spaces and Other Pieces (trans. John Sturrock, London: Penguin books, 1997).In remaking the full book, Morris' conviction has gone beyond the recent tradition of the artists' insert. Within the paratext he has corrupted the corporate branding, with penguins morphing into pigeons and advertisements re-imagined.One could be forgiven for asking why someone would remake an entire book just to make a conceptual play in a single chapter. Morris would likely respond with Perec's closing words from the very chapter re-played: 'These are questions that I ask, and I think there is some point in a writer asking them.'

Seemingly messy and chaotic, the landscapes and urban life of cities in Asia possess an order and hierarchy that often challenges understanding and appreciation. With contributions by a cross-disciplinary group of authors, Messy Urbanism: Understanding the “Other” Cities of Asia examines a range of cases in Asia to explore the social and institutional politics of urban informality and the contexts in which this “messiness” emerges or is constructed. The book brings a distinct perspective to the broader patterns of informal urban orders and processes as well as their interplay with formalized systems and mechanisms. It also raises questions about the production of cities, cityscapes, and citizenship. Messy Urbanism will appeal to professionals, students, and scholars in the fields of urban studies, architecture, landscape architecture, planning and policy, as well as Asian studies. “The rubric of ‘messy urbanism’ is a productive antidote to the binaries that have limited a productive discussion about urbanism in Asia. This book is a significant contribution in understanding the inherent nature of the built environments in aspiring democracies—an emergent urbanism that seamlessly embraces the incremental, temporal, and ephemeral as given conditions in the formation of Asian cities.” —Rahul Mehrotra, Architect / Professor of Urban Design and Planning, Harvard University “This book is of a high quality, with multiple examples from Hong Kong and China. The authors have covered the topic admirably and I expect the book to attract a wide readership.” —Vinit Mukhija, Associate Professor and Vice Chair of Urban Planning, UCLA
