This third volume in the “Essays on the Political Economy of Urban Form” series addresses contemporary power relations and their effects on urban and natural landscapes. Edited by Marc Angélil and Rainer Hehl, it explores geopolitics in the Amazon, Ecuador’s infrastructural subtraction, circulatory urbanism in Mumbai and urban development on Brazil’s frontier. It traces the economic exploitation and anthropology that drove widespread ecocide in the Amazon basin, and how accessible rail transport in India challenges artificial distinctions between urban and rural. With contributions by Paulo Tavares, Keller Easterling, Rainer Hehl and Matias Echanove and Rahul Srivastava.
