Summary Cities in Relations advances a novel way of thinking about urban transformation by focusing on transnational relations in the least developed countries. Cities in Relations advances a novel way of thinking about urban transformation by focusing on transnational relations in the least developed countries. Examines the last 20 years of urban development in Hanoi, Vietnam, and in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso Considers the ways in which a city s relationships with other places influences its urban development Provides fresh ideas for comparative urban studies that move beyond discussions of economic and policy factors Offers a clear and concise narrative accompanied by more than 45 photos and maps For many years, globalization has been considered insignificant in the least developed countries. Remedying this error, Cities in Relations advances a novel way of thinking about urban transformation by focusing on transnational relations in these places. By examining urban change in Hanoi, Vietnam, and Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, over the last 20 years, this volume considers the ways in which a city s relationships with other places influence its urban development. It shows how pervasive and variegated transnational relations are today in places that were relation-poor only two decades ago. The author provides new ideas for comparative urban studies and moves the discussion beyond reductive examinations of economic and policy factors. Uniting disparate approaches from urban ethnography to urban policy mobility to the geography of architecture and focusing on ordinary cities that are often overlooked, this study conceives of urban change in a fresh and exciting way.
