“Seeing like a City” creates a methodology for defining security, governing, and the urban, and proposes an investigation into the processes and conditions through which these concepts become imagined and problematized in policing practices. It makes the case for breaking down what Valverde has called “seeing like a city” into a variety of bubbles of security governance and suggests how to peer into these bubbles.
