Abstract

In The Geopolitics of Spectacle: Space, Synedoche and the New Capitals of Asia, Natalie Koch critically explores the 'spectacular urbanism' that has recently come to characterise a number of Asian capitals, with a particular focus on Astana, Kazakhstan. Through its accessible writing style and use of lively anecdotes, the book will encourage readers to become critically informed spectators of some of the world’s fastest emerging cities, finds Kristin Eggeling.
