Focuses on the effects of globalization on living space in East Asian metropolises. The author juxtaposes "social" accounts of the city's urban space as it has been reshaped by globalization with a "private" account as experienced by walkers, as represented in the films of Wong Kar-wai and Shinya Tsukamoto and the novels of Wang Anyi.
