'Race', Culture and the Right to the City offers a clear and critical account of the spread of multiculture from the central city to the periphery. The text adopts an international and interdisciplinary approach and explores multicultural life in London, Paris and New York, drawing upon primary and secondary research. The spatialized perspective of the book is inspired by Henri Lefebvre's work on the production of space and considers the role that 'race' continues to play in structuring the metropolis at a multiplicity of levels. In particular a contrast is drawn between the racialized inner cities of the 20th century and the 'outer-inner cities' that characterize the contemporary global city. Linking debates in 'racial' and ethnic studies to wider concerns with the city and urbanism this study will appeal to postgraduate students and academics in urban studies, 'race' and ethnic studies, social and cultural geography and cultural studies
