520    Using examples from film, literature and photography, this
       book analyzes how the Global Financial Crisis is portrayed
       in contemporary popular culture. In particular, the book 
       explores why particular urban spaces, infrastructures and 
       aesthetics - such as skyline shots in the opening credits 
       of financial crisis films - recur in contemporary crisis 
       narratives. Why are cities and finance connected in the 
       cultural imaginary? Which ideologies do urban crisis 
       imaginaries communicate? And, how do these imaginaries 
       relate to the notion of crisis? To consider these 
       questions, the book reads crisis narratives through the 
       lens of myth. It combines perspectives from cultural, 
       media and communication studies, anthropology, philosophy,
       geography and political economy to argue that the concept 
       of myth can offer new and nuanced insights into the 
       structure and politics of popular financial crisis 
       imaginaries. In so doing, the book also asks if, how and 
       under what conditions urban crisis imaginaries open up or 
       foreclose systematic and political understandings of the 
       Global Financial Crisis as a symptom of the broader 
       process of financialization.
