This book combines close readings of works with a constant reference to theoretical, anthropological and social studies of these two cities, and builds on received definitions of the concept megalopolis. Life in the Megalopolis is the first book to combine urban-studies theories (particularly Lefebvre, Harvey, and de Certeau) with Benjaminian cultural analyses, and theoretical discussions with close-readings of recent cultural works in various media. It is also the first book to compare Mexico City and S o Paulo. Questioning Cities (Hardcover).

The Mexico City megalopolis, also known as the Megalopolis of Central Mexico (Spanish: Corona regional del centro de México), is a megalopolis containing Greater Mexico City and surrounding metropolitan areas.
