Summary
Bringing together a multidisciplinary team of scholars, this book explores the importance of ethnicity and cultural economy in the post-Fordist city in the Americas. The work argues that cultural, political and economic elites make use of cultural and ethnic elements in city planning and architecture in order to construct a unique image of a particular city. It also shows how, simultaneously, ethnic communities can benefit from ethnic labelling of cultural production
