Reinventing the City

Liverpool in Comparative Perspective

edited by Ronaldo Munck

Liverpool University Press

'The City' has always been a strong focal point for critical social enquiry given its undisputed centrality for human life in the modern era. More recently, there has been a surge of interest in the postmodern city, the most popular subject being Los Angeles and the 'global city' - the New Yorks, Londons and Tokyos of the world - cities linked together through flows of finance. This book seeks to redress the balance using Liverpool, a city neither recognised as a 'global' or 'postmodern', as its focus.
