Cities as political objects : historical evolution, analytical categorisations and institutional challenges of metropolitanisation


The objective of this book is to reconstitute the historical, political ans spatial diversity of procesesses of metropolitanisation. Focusing on the city’s role as the nexus for new forms of relationships between politics, economics and society, this book views the city as a political phenomena. Its chapters unravel the city’s plural histories, contested political, legal and administrative boundaries, and its policy-making capacity in the context of multi-level and market pressures.
