The development and expansion of urban theory has drawn upon the experiences of a handful of 'global' or 'world' cities in the developed north. Conversely, cities of the south have been interpreted and theorised through the lens of development theory. Seldom, if ever, are these two different conceptual realms seen as mutually constituted theorised within the same discursive realm, aiding a more complete understanding of how cities function and change. A similar observation can be made about how our understanding of cities in the developing south have evolved. Large cities in more 'influential' developing countries are nearly always the empirical base from which our understanding of cities in the south takes place. The collection of essays in this title is set against the backdrop of calls for a more inclusive theorisation and understanding of cities, that transcend the dichotomous urban narrative which characterises current academic and policy engagements with cities. Drawing on the experiences of a secondary city in South Africa - Bloemfontein - this collection of essays argues that the realities of un-remarked upon, ordinary cities both challenge and reinforce a number of debates in urban theory and development theory.
