Globalised Minds, Roots in the City utilises empirical evidence from four European cities to explore the role of urban upper middle classes in the transformations experienced by contemporary European societies. 

  • Presents new empirical evidence collected through an original comparative research about professionals and managers in four European cities in three countries
  • Features an innovative combination of approaches, methods, and techniques in its analyses of European post-national societies
  • Reveals how segments of Europe’s  urban population are adopting “exit” or “partial exit” strategies in respect to the nation state
  • Utilises approaches from classic urban sociology, globalization and mobility studies, and spatial class analysis
  • Includes in depth interviews, social networking techniques, and classic questions of political representation and values

 

Keywords: Geography of Globalization, Social class and cities, urban sociology, globalisation, mobility, partial exit, transnationalism, capitalism, Europeanisation, scale, territory, social differentiation
