Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Thirteen chapters from a multidisciplinary group of contributors explain the transformations in the spatial organization of European cities that have taken place over the past two decades. Authors consider the ways in which these transformations force a reconceptualization of traditional definitions of the city. Chapter review the changes, starting from the processes of spatial fragmentation, the growing complexity of systems of governance, and the transformation of relations of the inhabitants of public space. The impact of urban policies on quality of life and the regeneration of systems of urban governance is also addressed. Case studies are drawn from Milan, Turin, Antwerp, Geneva, and Zurich.
