Or check out The City and the City, also by Mieville, for an equally mind-tickling read. They didn’t think of themselves as colonialists. If, however, you have a world that has some redeeming features, is not controlled by the State and/or Mega Corp., technology isn't screwing everything up, and the protagonists are trying to fix social problems from within rather than rebelling against society from without, you have Post- Cyber Punk.
