The book City, Streets and Citizens: The Measure of the Ordinary by Dr. Suanne Hall of the London School of Economics and Political Science uses the marginal perspective as an entry point to conduct a vivid study on city streets. The book selects the Walworth Road, an ordinary high street on the south bank of the Thames in London, as a lens to analyze the conflict, collision, and integration between globalization and local life. Having seven chapters in addition to an introduction, the book is characterized by interdisciplinary research, marginal perspective, and urban transformation research, which is suitable for all types of readers that are interested in architecture, sociology, anthropology, and urban issues.
