'The Smart City in a Digital World is already a classic book summarizing and adapting Vincent Mosco's thinking to the new mythology of contemporary societies: smart cities. The smartness of our cities is not made by people, but by technologies. The smartness is an obliged future all the cities should aim for. The smartness is a political idea created by a mix of business interests, surveillance capitalism, and neoliberism. Smart cities are, at the end, another mythology brought by digitalization with strong effects on the ways humans live together in big cities. But another way is possible and Mosco, in the last pages, proposes a manifesto for the smart cities, placing humans at the center of them.' -- Prof. dr. Gabriele Balbi, Associate Professor in Media Studies, USI Universita della Svizzera italiana 'This is an insightful, informative book that takes a critical, informed look into a technology-driven development from a social sense perspective.' -- Bob Emmerson, IoT Now Transport
