Cities are theorized as relational spaces in a continual process of growth or contraction, flux and change. The last decade has seen a stupendous growth in theoretical and empirical work on the city in global flows, primarily from structuralist perspectives. In this chapter, I outline the five main challenges for studying the city in global flows: what flows to study? How to respond the challenges of ‘big’ data? What should compose the space of flows ‘of everything’? Where to study flows? And, how to incorporate inter-disciplinarity into studies of the city in the global space of flows? Keywords: globalization, cities, urbanization, global city, global flows

Fewer than 100 people own and control more wealth than 50 per cent of the world’s population. The Handbook on Wealth and the Super-Rich is a unique examination of both the lives and lifestyles of the super-rich, as well as the processes that underpin super-wealth generation and its unequal distribution. Drawing on a multiplicity of international examples, leading experts from across the social sciences offer a landmark multidisciplinary contribution to emerging analyses of the global super-rich and their astonishing wealth. The book’s 22 accessible and coherently organised chapters cover a range of captivating topics from biographies of illicit super-wealth, to tax footprint reduction, to the environmental consequences of super-rich lives and their conspicuous consumption.
