Review quote

-This is a major book: one that is set to change the field in important ways. It is brief, challenging, informative, and accessible. There is hardly anyone who has the breadth of knowledge and experience that Julie-Anne Boudreau has, and few indeed who can bring such acute analytical insights to the work at hand. This book is a very important contribution to the literature. I would use it as a principal text for any course on urban politics.- Warren Magnusson, University of Victoria -In Global Urban Politics, Julie-Anne Boudreau has produced a synthesis of theory and observation to provide a strikingly original understanding of the urban. Seeing the urban as demarcated by practices rather than boundaries, she provides important insights into the nature of politics in the present era.- Susan S. Fainstein, Harvard University Graduate School of Design "This is a major book: one that is set to change the field in important ways. It is brief, challenging, informative, and accessible.
