Almost as new, slight corner crease to a couple of pages. 'An audacious and inspiring work. Although engaging with, and profoundly knowledgeable of, current trends and theories in urban studies and human geography, Garth Myers nonetheless also opens up these disciplines to other, alternative visions of African cities to be found in literature and the arts. These bold gestures offer an infinitely more complex, nuanced, and above all, hopeful representation of African urban environments, which moves beyond the popular image of a continent mired in corruption and failure and towards a reading of African cityscapes as the very essence of global modernity. Anyone with an interest in Africa, or in what our cities may become, should read this book.' David Richards, University of Stirling 256 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Sociology & Culture; Inventory No: dscf9912.
