About This Book

What can the generative processes of dynamic ownership reveal about howthe urban is experienced, understood and made in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia? Shaping Urban Futures in Mongolia provides an ethnography of actions, strategies and techniques that form part of how residents precede andunderwrite the owning of real estate property – including apartments and land –in a rapidly changing city. In doing so, it charts the types of visions of thefuture and perceptions of the urban form that are emerging within Ulaanbaatarfollowing a period of investment, urban growth and subsequent economicfluctuation in Mongolia's extractive economy since the late 2000s.

Following emerging political subjectivities, the way that people discuss the ethics of urban change and the seeking of 'quality', Plueckhahn explores howconceptualisations of growth, multiplication, and the portioning of wholesinfluence residents' interactions with Ulaanbaatar's urban landscape. ShapingUrban Futures in Mongolia combines a study of changing postsocialistforms of ownership with a study of the lived experience of recentinvestment-fuelled urban growth within the Asia region. Examining ownership in Mongolia'scapital reveals how residents attempt to understand and make visible the hiddenintricacies of this changing landscape. Praise for Shaping Urban Futures in Mongolia 'Overall this is an excellent and admirably compact study of urban property. It will be an especially useful book for students of Inner Asia's ongoing and messy urbanization. I hope as well that it will find an audience outside of its area studies confines, as the travails of people in Ulaanbaatar seeking to turn the financialization of the city to some sort of private advantage says much about the contemporary city writ large.'
