Cities of Whiteness by Wendy S. Shaw

Book Description

This groundbreaking book brings the study of whiteness and postcolonial perspectives to bear on debates about urban change. * A thought-provoking contribution to debates about urban change, race and cosmopolitan urbanism * Brings the study of whiteness to the discipline of geography, questioning the notion of white ethnicity * Engages with Indigenous peoples' experiences of whiteness - past and present, and with theoretical postcolonial perspectives * Uses Sydney as an example of a 'city of whiteness', considering trends such as Sydney's 'SoHo Syndrome' and the 'Harlemisation' of the Aboriginal community
