This groundbreaking book brings the study of whiteness and postcolonial perspectives to bear on debates about urban change.
- A thought-provoking contribution to debates about urban change, race and cosmopolitan urbanism
- Brings the study of whiteness to the discipline of geography, questioning the notion of white ethnicity
- Engages with Indigenous peoples' experiences of whiteness – past and present, and with theoretical postcolonial perspectives
- Uses Sydney as an example of a 'city of whiteness', considering trends such as Sydney's 'SoHo Syndrome' and the 'Harlemisation' of the Aboriginal community
