Abstract

In How to Run a City like Amazon and Other Fables – available to download here – editors Mark Graham et al offer 38 stories written by academics that utilise speculative fiction to explore how cities might look, feel and function, and the effects on society, economics and politics, if different business models and technologies were applied to the running of cities. The contributors conjure evocative visions of these imagined cities, allowing readers to drop into complex futures that seemingly involve more struggles than improvements, writes Lorenzo De Vidovich.
