""An outstanding contribution to urban scholarship. . . . [Tajbakhsh] moves us beyond essentialist views of cities as simple arenas of class struggle to a more complex and nuanced view of cities as spaces for encounters with difference and otherness and, as such, sites that transform the meanings of actors' identities.""â¿¿Michael Peter Smith, author of City, State, and Market ""I am sure this book will be influential in shaping the discourse on urban social theory in the near future.""â¿¿Tridib Banerjee, coauthor of Urban Design Downtown ""In this ambitious work, Kian Tajbakhsh addresses the fundamental issues confronting urban theory today. His aim is no less than to reconcile concepts of structure and identity within the contemporary city. Using the analytic frames of spacing and hybridity, he advances our theoretical knowledge of the multiple, overlapping fields that constitute urban life. Everyone seeking to understand the socio-spatial dialectic through which urbanism is constituted will benefit from the insights of this book."" â¿¿Susan S. Fainstein, author of The City Builders
