Abstract

The AA. consider the case of the rapidly growing city of Khimki at the edge of Moskow, in order to expose the post-Soviet variety of the political economy of place on the metropolitan periphery. They analyse a broader institutional context of post-socialist urbanisation and more specific aspects of local growth and placemaking. Recent development includes elements that resemble those apparent in edge cities and even appear to be promoted by a post-socialist variety of growth machine politics. Accumulation strategies in the post-socialist case are found to be less cartelised and localised than in the West
