I was interested to see how the Chinese are tackling the Hong Kong Map Tourist Attractions problem. One technique, used extensively along railway embankments, is a quilt of straw squares Hong Kong Map Tourist Attractions to stop the sand covering the track. The local people must appreciate the project since they do not allow their camels to destroy the straw squares. They are also experimenting with chemicals to harden the sand, and with dry earth tolerating shrubs and trees, planted to start building up enough soil to merit irrigation and subsequent cultivation. The following day I explored the area a little more closely by camel. It was a small camel, somewhat thin with humps flopped over and rather bald, having shed its winter coat.
The database is an instrument of selection, separation and exclusion. It keeps the globals in the sieve and washes out the locals. Certain people it admits to the extraterritorial cyberspace, making them feel at home wherever they go and welcome wherever they arrive; others it deprives of passports and visas and stops from roaming the places reserved for the residents of cyberspace. But the latter effect is subsidiary and complementary to the former.
Bauman sees a new rich with personal mobility, and a new poor of economic migrants and asylum seekers; he also sees that transnational commerce uses transnational organizations, such as the World Trade Organization, to avoid the restrictions of national regulation. In the world of globalization, emerging elites are identified by consumption, often with cultural connotations. Bauman writes: The way present-day society shapes its members is dictated … by the duty to play the role of the consumer’ (1998: 80), adding, Everybody may be cast into the mode of the consumer … may wish to be a consumer … But not everybody can be a consumer’ (1998: 85). I would suggest, similarly, not every city has the potential to be a cultural city, or node of cultural production and reception in the way that cities such as Paris, Munich or Vienna were from the 1880s to the 1930s. This is not a direct comparison with the plight of migrant publics, obviously, but the point is that globalization produces new kinds of division between groups of people in – or not in – the affluent society, and between cities, which have – or lack – an attractive cultural veneer. The next section of the chapter analyses aspects of culturally-led urban renewal, asking how the process operates and whom it benefits.
