520    With the rise of wealth inequalities, our cities are 
       changing dramatically. This collection critically engages 
       with and advances existing debates on the super-rich and 
       their roles in these transformations. An interdisciplinary
       range of contributions from international experts 
       including sociologists, geographers, historians, discourse
       analysts, and urban studies specialists reveal crucial 
       aspects of the real estate investment practices of the 
       super-rich, their social spaces in the city as well as the
       distinct influence of the super-rich on the transformation
       of four key cities: London, Tokyo, Singapore and Hong 
       Kong. By drawing together diverse disciplines, 
       perspectives, and experiences across different 
       geographical contexts, this book offers a fresh, 
       comparative, and nuanced take on the super-rich and the 1%
       city, as well as a solid, empirically and theoretically 
       grounded basis to think about future research questions 
       and policy implications.
