Abstract from the publisher :
- The companion to Phaidon’s popular The Endless City, with the same mix of smart writing, remarkable photographs and incisive data on the field of urban development and its related disciplines
- An authoritative text written by esteemed thinkers from all around the globe, under the leadership of Ricky Burdett of the London School of Economics and Deyan Sudjic of the Design Museum, London
- Focuses on Istanbul, Mumbai and São Paulo, with essays and data on vital themes including security, climate change, democracy and globalization in these three cities as well as the six featured in The Endless City: Berlin, Johannesburg, London, Mexico City, New York City and Shanghai

In 2050, over three quarters of the world’s population will live in cities. This follow-up to Phaidon’s successful The Endless City is a close look at the issues that affect cities, and thus human life across the globe in the twenty-first century. Based on a series of conferences held by the London School of Economics, Living in the Endless City examines Mumbai, Sao Paolo and Istanbul through a series of essays by global scholars and thinkers, photographs illustrating key aspects of life in the three cities, and compellingly presented analytical data.
Ricky Burdett is Professor of Urban Studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and the Director of LSE Cities and the Urban Age programme.
Dejan Sudjic is Director of the Design Museum, London and a former Dean of the Faculty of Art, Design and Architecture at Kingston University.
