Book Description:

A captivating guide to our urban future utilizing the urban geographic history of contemporary Los Angeles, a vivid & far-reaching interpretation of the restructured megacity.

From the Back Cover:

Postmetropolis completes Edward Soja's trilogy aimed atexpanding the scope and critical insight of our spatialimaginations. Applying the theoretical frameworks developed inPostmodern Geographies (1989) and Thirdspace (1996),it is the first comprehensive text in the growing field of criticalurban and regional studies to deal with the dramaticallyrestructured megacities that emerged worldwide over the last halfof the twentieth century. At its core is a lively discussion of sixdiscourses that have coalesced around explaining what Soja callsthe postmetropolitan transition, a major sea change in how we livein cities and experience urbanism as a way of life. To providedepth to these discussions, the book begins with a rethinking ofthe debates on the origins of cities, the geohistorical evolutionof urban form, and the dynamic relations between society and spacein the specific context of urban agglomerations.

In addition to being an innovative text in urban and regionalstudies and an insightful application of new approaches tointerpreting the spatiality of human life, Postmetropolis isalso a book about contemporary Los Angeles, a vivid andfar-reaching interpretation of its turbulent recent history andgeography. The book concludes with a look back to the civil unrestof 1992 to portray the postmetropolis in explosive crisis as wellas to draw some hope for the future based on new coalition-basedstruggles for spatial justice and regional democracy.
