  • Argues that a city’s contribution to the making of publics goes beyond the provision of places for public gathering
  • Examines a series of detailed case studies
  • Looks at the relationship between urbanism, public spheres, and democracy

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Rich and varied case studies make the material accessible ... .Anoriginal, engaging, and interesting contribution to debates aboutthe uses, meanings, and urban dimensions of public address andpublic space." (American Journal of Sociobiology, February2010)

"An important book ... .Compelling." (Progress in HumanGeography, February 2010)

“Iveson clearly demonstrates why issues of publicnessshould be of concern to all geographers, and he suggests that thereis too much at stake to accept existing normative assumptions aboutthe decline of the public sphere.” (CulturalGeographies, October 2008)
