Global Asian City

Migration, Desire and the Politics of Encounter in 21st Century Seoul

«<p>'This intriguing piece of work casts migrants as urban actors, desires as social forces, and the city as assemblage. This work helps readers understand how migrants, desire, and the city shape each other through their encounters. It leads us to view the relationship between migration and cities in the East Asian context through the lens of the making and re-making of Seoul.'<br /><b>HaeRan Shin, Department of Geography, Seoul National University</b>  </p> <p>'This is one of the first books to bring together two critical developments in 21<sup>st</sup> century Asia: the emergence of global cities and increasing immigration. Empirically rich, theoretically sophisticated and methodologically innovative, the book reveals how the making of Seoul as a global city is deeply entwined with migration as a process of becoming at the individual level.'<br /><b>Biao Xiang, School of Anthropology & Museum Ethnography, University of Oxford</b></p>»
