The book is tantalizingly titled, promising to draw together between the covers of a single volume empirical analyses of several key notions, namely, space, culture, power, identity and globalization. It is attractive precisely for its empirical orientation, especially towards several cities that do not often enter the English language literature, particularly Istanbul, Cairo and the former East German cities. Concerned with globalization and localization, the book has a particular emphasis on social and cultural dimensions while situating the discussions within the larger networks and circuits of global trade and finance.
