From the Publisher‘The Form of Cities is an important critique and synthesis of recent thinking about urban design … a powerful analysis of the emergence, logic, and political meaning of the built environment in given historical contexts.’ Allen J. Scott, Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Geography, UCLA
‘A major achievement in the radical spirit of Manuel Castells’ and Mike Davis’ writings. Cuthbert repositions urban design theory … to reveal the bedrock systems of material and symbolic production shaping modern cities.’ Chris Abel, Architectural critic and author of Architecture, Technology, Process and Architecture and Identity
‘Truly an impressive piece of work. … This book will become seminal not only for urban design students and practitioners, and those engaged in the study and practice of urban policy-making and planning, but also for students of urban geography and political science.’ Harry T. Dimitriou, Bartlett Professor of Planning Studies, UCL
"[Cuthbert] sets out not only to make the professional case for urban design but also the disciplinary case. What ensues is an immense and far-reaching catalog of ideas that in many ways is a tour de force."
