Readings in Urban Theory / Edition 2by Susan S. Fainstein
Pub. Date: 02/28/2002
Intended to address a set of questions rather than to provide a survey of the field, the 19 readings presented by Fainstein (urban planning and policy development, Rutgers U.) and Campbell (urban planning and policy development, U. of Michigan) were selected to discuss the changing urban and regional systems of the United States and the United Kingdom, the social impacts of those systems, the effects of publicly sponsored redevelopment programs, and the cultural meaning of spatial relations. Specific topics include examinations of the New Urbanism theories gaining prominence in the US; the environmental history of Silicon Valley; the relation of the world economy to urban restructuring; the interactions between race, class, and segregation; gentrification and the restructuring of space; the promotion of urban tourism; and the "Disneyification" of urban space.
