The text adopts an international and interdisciplinary approach and explores multicultural life in London, Paris and New York, drawing upon primary and secondary research. The spatialized perspective of the book is inspired by Henri Lefebvres work on the production of space and considers the role that race continues to play in structuring the metropolis at a multiplicity of levels. In particular a contrast is drawn between the racialized inner cities of the 20th century and the outer-inner cities that characterize the contemporary global city. Linking debates in racial and ethnic studies to wider concerns with the city and urbanism thisstudy will appeal to postgraduate students and academics in urban studies, race and ethnic studies, social and cultural geography and cultural studies.
