Beschreibung:

This volume of essays on urbanisation explores core themes such as privatisation and vitality. Using exemplars from places as diverse as Brazil and the Middle East, its post-voluntarist perspective rejects neoliberal and determinist planning traditions.

Wild Urbanism.- Introduction and Acknowledgements.- Abstraction.- Brazilianisation.- Convergence.- Dispersion.- Expansion.- Gentrification.- Hegemony.- Modernisation.- Privatisation.- Regulation.- Segregation.- Urban Space.- Vitality.- Afterword.- References.
In a series of essays, the process of urbanisation - a human mega-trend acquiring unprecedented scale and speed as globalisation proceeds - is examined in the most diverse contexts and stages of development. Drawing on scientific references and identifying recurring themes like dispersion, privatisation and vitality, Fiedler devises the glossary for a cross-cultural understanding of the global urban system emerging. Images and anecdotal evidence reconnect these themes to local realities. The tone of the essays conveys a post-voluntarist attitude, derived from many years of professional experience - critical of both neoliberal practices and determinist ideas.
