Summary Based on ethnographical study of Muslim neighbourhoods, this work argues that it is not merely communal discrimination and prejudice that causes formation of segregated Muslim enclaves. Through an intricately weaved argument the text explains that rather than being excluded from the city, the Muslim areas contain a segment of immobile labour and capital that are uniquely positioned for exploitation in the globalised world. Segregated spaces provide for accumulation in favour of other spaces in the city.
Audience Specialized.
