- Offers an integrated assessment of smart cities using a combination of statistical analysis and real-world case study narrations
- Compares smart city interventions from the 135 cities that participated in the Smarter Cities Challenge with detailed case study narrations included for 17 cities
- Demonstrates the ways in which geography, size, governance, and local planning context—each individually and in combination with each other—influence smart city development around the globe
- Develops an urban research perspective to the smart city discourse otherwise dominated by digital and IT specialists, engineers, and business experts
- Identifies the North–South divide as the most influential factor explaining how smart urbanism is framed worldwide and argues that the future of smart city development depends on how "smart" approaches the ongoing and increasing level of inequity and inequality not only within our cities but also at the transregional and transnational levels
