Arising from the Arabian Gulf:
Challenges for Sociology, Urbanism and Civic Coherence

Harvey Molotch, New York University

 

Cities like Abu Dhabi, Doha, and
Dubai bespeak not only glittering
skyscrapers, but also distinctive forms
of social organization, class relations,
and status dynamics. They display a
heightened role of consumption in
political life and urban form. The
resulting “test-beds” travel beyond the
Gulf as models for emulation as well as
through Gulf-directed financial
investment.
