Description - Cosmopolitan Urbanism by Jon Binnie

Cosmopolitanism has become the focus of considerable critical attention in academia. Cosmopolitan Urbanism is concerned with examining the process whereby certain forms of difference are domesticated to generate social and cultural capital, while other forms of difference are denied. Part One is concerned with the production and consumption and cosmopolitanism, whilst Part Two focuses on the spatialities of cosmopolitanism. Part Three examines the deployment, mobilization and articulation of cosmopolitan discourses in policy-making and urban design. The collection of essays combine an engagement with complex theoretical material with well thought-out cases from across the globe that demonstrate different meanings of cosmopolitanism through a grounding in particular material processes and places. Jon Binnie, Manchester Metropolitan University Julian Holloway, Manchester Metropolitan University Steve Millington, Manchester Metropolitan University Craig Young
