Description - Imagining Cities by Sallie Westwood

First published in 1997, Imagining Cities gives students access to the most exciting recent work on the city from within sociology, cultural studies and cultural geography. Contributions are grouped around four major themes:

  • The theoretical imagination
  • Ethnic diversity and the politics of difference
  • Memory and nostalgia
  • The city as narrative

The book considers the interplay of past and present, imagined and substantive, and links present and future in examining the idea of the virtual city. Here, the world of cyberspace not only recasts views of space and communication, but has a profound impact on the sociological imagination itself.
