about

Adopting a perspective inspired by Henri Lefebvre, this book considers the spread of multiculture from the central city to the periphery and considers the role that 'race' continues to play in structuring the metropolis, taking London, New York and Paris as examples.
GARETH MILLINGTON is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Social Sciences at Roehampton University, London, UK.

Editorial Reviews

"A valuable and inviting geohistorical exploration of our new urban landscapes of exclusion and diversity. Millington is an insightful and original guide to the sociological past and present of the 'multicultural' city." - Alastair Bonnett, Professor of Social Geography, Newcastle University, UK
