Críticas:

"A fascinating examination of the many elements, and the countless ways in which societies have grown an infrastructure of air travel parallel to any intended arrangements, and well outside any comprehensive plans."--Urban Land Magazine"A fascinating, well-documented story of a world in transition."--CHOICE"Airport Urbanism's perceptive and extensive empirical analysis will certainly be of value not only to scholars of East and Southeast Asian cities but also to those who intervene directly in their planning and development."--Urban Studies "Airport Urbanism dissects issues in infrastructural design and aesthetics, physical mobility and social immobility, and the lived experiences of an emerging Asian urbanism--a remarkable achievement by a scholar who possesses the intellectual virtuosity to bridge realms in every direction."--Helen F. Siu, Yale University "Lucid and entertaining, Max Hirsh's account of airport infrastructure shatters the fiction of showpiece airports as the acme of international air travel. This highly perceptive reading of cross-border mobility and its role in shaping the urban landscape in Asia is a critical contribution to the emerging scholarship on infrastructure."--Swati Chattopadhyay, University of California, Santa Barbara ""Airport Urbanism" dissects issues in infrastructural design and aesthetics, physical mobility and social immobility, and the lived experiences of an emerging Asian urbanism a remarkable achievement by a scholar who possesses the intellectual virtuosity to bridge realms in every direction."

Reseña del editor:

In Airport Urbanism, Max Hirsh undertakes an unprecedented study of airport infrastructure in five Asian cities-Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. Drawing on material gathered in restricted zones of airports and border control facilities, Hirsh provides a fascinating, up-close view of the mechanics of cross-border mobility.
