Nick Stevenson, University of Nottingham
"An impressive contribution to understanding the cultural dynamism of London as a global, cosmopolitan city and London's position among global cities more generally. Georgiou delves expertly beneath official hype to the street level where diverse creative worlds are shaped by different media, especially in the divisions and cultural encounters of the East End."
John Eade, University of Roehampton
"Cities are competitive projects of creativity and power. More than half of the human species live in them, and more want to. Myria Georgiou s fascinating new vision of the mediated and cosmopolitan city explores humanity's biggest project yet by investigating its role in consumption, identity, community and civic action."
John Hartley, Curtin University
