“Suburban Governance is a landmark volume for the consolidation of global urban studies, making an important contribution to a new generation of scholarship marking out the opportunities for inventive theorization and the renewal of the conceptual landscape of the field. It sets a new standard for the growing commitment to post-colonialize urban studies.”
Jennifer Robinson, Department of Geography, University College London
