Some brief overview of book

This book examines the ways in which cities are becoming increasingly divided. It explores how divisions are formed and maintained, both physically and symbolically and the ways these divisions shape the urban experience. A range of social, cultural, political and economic processes are critically engaged with, examining traditional and new divisions in cities, from growing digital divides, health inequalities and the consequences of civic conflict and war.

The book also offers a framework for understanding divisions in cities in terms of viewing cities beyond the west. With international examples from a range of cities, this book offers a theoretical and conceptual framework for understanding contemporary divisions and fragmentations in cities.
