Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This remarkable multidisciplinary anthology provides the theoretical tools for readers to make sense of the urban world. Essays by leading scholars review the ideas and concepts that underpin urban policy and planning-from cities' functions in a regional and global context to their role as reflectors of urban culture and fantasy. Readers will be challenged by analyses of urban racism and rights of citizenship, growth machines and tourist bubbles, global cities and the new urbanism." John Logan, University of Albany
