About the Author

AbdouMaliq Simone is an urbanist and Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Since 1977 he has had many jobs in different cities across African and Southeast Asia, in the fields of education, housing, social welfare, urban development, and local government. His best known publications are In Whose Image: Political Islam and Urban Practices in the Sudan, and For the City Yet to Come: Urban Change in Four African Cities.


"Lucid and lyrical, City Life from Jarkarta to Dakar reveals what is unknown to most of urban sociology: the globally interconnected everyday life of our cities. Simone's compelling narratives coalesce into a brilliant new analytics for understanding how people, despite all odds, struggle to make cities their own."--Michael Goldman, Sociology and Global Studies, University of Minnesota "AbdouMaliq Simone is one of the most important interlocuters of contemporary urbanism. In provocative fashion, his work shows how the poetics of everyday urban life is also an extraordinary politics of resilience, speculation, and accumulation." Ananya Roy, City and Regional Planning, University of California, Berkeley "Simone is one of the most influential and original urban thinkers writing today. This book breaks new ground in the comparative analysis of cities in the global South raising questions that cut across both theory and practice in a variety of unexpected and imaginative ways."--Matthew Gandy, Geography, University College London
