Abstract

Ananya Roy and Aihwa Ong's Worlding Cities: Asian Experiments and the Art of Being Global is a timely intervention in the hegemonic discourses surrounding the epistemologies and methodologies of urban studies. The authors take the position that dominant theories of globalization or post‐coloniality are over‐determined in their privileging of capitalism and class struggles in the analysis of urban problems in emerging world regions.
