Urban Geography

A Global Perspective

Michael Pacione, University of Strathclyde, UK

Perspective Michael Pacione , University of Strathclyde, UK Today, for the first time in the history

Today, for the first time in the history of Humankind, urban dwellers outnumber rural residents. Urban places, towns and cities, are of fundamental importance – for the distribution of population within countries; in the organization of economic production, distribution and exchange; in the structuring of social reproduction and cultural life; and in the allocation and exercise of power. Furthermore, in the course of the present century the number of urban dwellers and level of global urbanization are destined to increase. Even those living beyond the administrative or functional boundaries of a town or city will have their lifestyle influenced to some degree by a nearby, or even distant, city.

The analysis of towns and cities is a central element of all social sciences including geography, which offers a particular perspective on and insight into the urban condition. The principal goal of this third edition of the book remains that of providing instructors and students of the contemporary city with a comprehensive introduction to the expanding field of urban studies. The structure of the first two editions is maintained, with minor amendments. Each of the thirty chapters has been revised to incorporate recent developments in the field. All of the popular study aids are retained, the glossary has been expanded, and chapter references and notes updated to reflect the latest research. This third edition also provides new and expanded discussion of key themes and debates including detailed consideration of metacities, boomburgs, public space, urban sprawl, balanced communities, urban economic restructuring, poverty and financial exclusion, the right to the city, urban policy, reverse migration, and traffic and transport problems.

New to this edition are: further readings based on the latest research; updated data and statistics; an expanded glossary; new key concepts; additional study questions; and a listing of useful websites.

The book provides a comprehensive interpretation of the urban geography of the contemporary world. Written in a clear and readable style, lavishly illustrated with more than 80 photographs, 180 figures, 100 tables and over 200 boxed studies and a plethora of study aids, Urban Geography: A Global Perspective represents the ultimate resource for students of urban geography.

UK Series: Routledge Contemporary Human Geography More than simply examining the new geographical patterns

More than simply examining the new geographical patterns forming within cities, this third edition of Urban Geography also investigates the way geographers have sought to make sense of this urban transformation. Tim Hall critically synthesizes key literatures in the following areas:

approaches to urban geography

economic geography of the city

urban policy

new urban forms and landscapes

impacts of urban change

sustainability and the city.

Hall’s revised third edition features enhanced pedagogy including boxed discussion points, end of chapter research questions, and an introductory chapter which outlines the importance of urban geography. Additionally a new concluding chapter encourages students to apply what they have read to their own experiences of cities and helps them to apply these ideas to a dissertation. An important volume, this revised edition is an essential read for students and scholars of urban geography.

Environment and the City

4 TEXTBOOKS AND READERS NEW Environment and the City Peter Roberts , University of Leeds, UK,

Peter Roberts, University of Leeds, UK, Joe Ravetz and Clive George, both at University of Manchester, UK

Series: Routledge Introductions to Environment

Environment and the City is an introduction to the many layers of the ‘human urban environment’. It examines the full range of issues and elements that make-up the urban environment, including the consumption of resources, population pressures, and the pattern of urban development. These different issues and elements are examined through adopting an inter-disciplinary perspective, drawing equally on geography, sociology, economics and political science, as well as the environmental and resource sciences. As a consequence, the book is able to focus on the key debates that are of critical importance for the cities of both the developed and less-developed nations. The result is not a simple, single solution, rather the book offers a set of directions and tools of enquiry that provide a realistic and practical approach to understanding and managing sustainable cities and regions.

This book is a concise and accessible guide for all students interested in the environmental issues emanating from our urban societies.

Urban Regeneration in the UK is an excellent addition to the available texts on urban regeneration. It is well written and easy to read which makes it appropriate for both students and practitioners alike. It provides a comprehensive introduction to urban regeneration policy and history and discusses a varied range of situations and case studies.’ Dr. Ruth Richards, London South Bank University, UK

Exploring the streets of England’s major cities, one cannot help but notice the striking transformations taking place in the urban landscapes. This prominent regeneration of urban areas in the UK and around the world has become an increasingly important issue amongst governments and populations. The growing concern has been a result of the impacts of the decline of cities since the collapse of manufacturing industries and the heightening of global competition. A range of innovative approaches to tackle urban problems have been taken over many decades to attempt to regenerate the fortunes of towns and cities across the UK. This text provides an accessible, yet critical, synthesis of urban regeneration in the UK incorporating key policies, approaches, issues and debates. The central objective of the book is to place the historical and contemporary regeneration agenda into context.

Series: Routledge Perspectives on Development

’Most books about developing cities tend to be written from the standpoint of either academic disciplinary theorizing or from practitioner concerns with a problem, such as urban upgrading. The strength of this book lies in its focus on the role of cities in development from a multidisciplinary perspective which will appeal to students.’ Stella Lowder, University of Glasgow, UK

Cities and Development provides a critical exploration of the dynamic relationship between urbanism and development. Highlighting both the challenges and opportunities associated with rapid urban change, the book surveys topics such as:

the historical relationship between urbanization and development

the role cities play in fostering economic growth in a globalizing world

the unique characteristics of urban poverty and the poor record of interventions designed to tackle it

the importance of urban planning, governance and politics in shaping city futures.

The book is intended for senior undergraduate and graduate students interested in urban, international and development studies, as well as policy makers and planners concerned with equitable and sustainable urban development.

Cities and Suburbs

New Metropolitan Realities in the US

B ernadette F. Hanlon , J ohn Rennie Short , both at University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA and Thomas J. Vicino, Wheaton College, USA

This book is a systematic examination of the historical and current roles that cities and suburbs play in US metropolitan areas. It explores the history of cities and suburbs, their changing dynamics with each other, their growing diversity, the environmental consequences of their development and finally the extent and nature of their decline and renewal.

Topics of discussion include:

•key ideas and concepts on the demographic and sociospatial aspects of metropolitan change

•the changing nature of city and suburban population migration and their relationships with changes at the local, metropolitan, national, and global levels

•current metropolitan public policy issues of large cities and suburbs

•links of suburbanization to metropolitan transformation and the growing dichotomy between suburban decline and suburban sprawl in metropolitan areas.

Cities and Suburbs relies on theorized case studies, demographic analysis, maps, and photos from North America. Written in a clear and accessible style, the book addresses various fundamental questions about the socioeconomic role that suburbs and cities play in shaping metropolitan areas, their environmental impact, the political consequences, and the resulting policy debates.

The Gentrification Reader

Edited by Loretta Lees, King’s College London, UK, Tom Slater and Elvin Wyly, University of British Columbia, Canada

Gentrification is a durable element of urban structure and remains a key site of theoretical debate amongst scholars. More recently it is also a flashpoint for public discussion of major policy issues now that state-led gentrification is a central policy in many nations and cities around the world.

This Reader brings together in one volume both classic writings – often particularly hard to find – and contemporary literature which is spread over a wide variety of books and journals across many disciplines. The editors have selected the most influential readings, covering everything from the theories of gentrification through to analysis of state-led gentrification policies and community resistance to those policies. This is an unparalleled collection of writings on this most contentious of contempary issues.

QUESTIONING CITIES

Questioning Cities

Edited by Gary Bridge, University of Bristol, UK

The Questioning Cities series brings together an unusual mix of urban scholars under the title. Rather than taking a broadly economic approach, planning approach or more socio-cultural approach, it aims to include titles from a multi-disciplinary field of those interested in critical urban analysis. The series thus includes authors who draw on contemporary social, urban and critical theory to explore different aspects of the city.

Globalization, Violence and the Visual Culture of Cities

Edited by Christoph Lindner, University of Amsterdam, Holland

What connects garbage dumps in New York, bomb sites in Baghdad, and skyscrapers in São Paulo? How is contemporary visual culture – extending from art and architecture to film and digital media – responding to new forms of violence associated with global and globalizing cities? Addressing such questions, this book is the first interdisciplinary volume to examine the complex relationship between globalization, violence, and the visual culture of cities.

How Actor-Network Theory Changes Urban Studies

Edited by Ignacio Farías, Social Science Research Centre, Germany and Thomas Bender, New York University, USA

This book proposes – and its various chapters offer demonstrations – importing into urban studies a body of theories, concepts, and perspectives developed in the field of science and technology studies (STS) and, more specifically, Actor-Network Theory (ANT). The essays examine artifacts, technical systems, architectures, place and eventful spaces, the persistence of history, imaginary and virtual elements of city life, and the politics and ethical challenges of a mode of analysis that incorporates multiple actors as hybrid chains of causation.

The (Dis)enchantments of Urban Encounters

Sophie Watson, The Open University, UK

Through her investigation of the more ordinary and less dramatic forms of encounter and contestation in the city, Watson is able to conceive an urban public realm and urban public space that is heterogeneous and potentially progressive. With numerous photographs and drawings City Publics not only throws new light on encounters with others in public space, but also destabilizes dominant, sometimes simplistic, universalized accounts and helps us re-imagine urban public space as a site of potentiality, difference, and enchanted encounters.

Club Cultures

Boundaries, Identities and Otherness

Silvia Rief, University of Innsbruck, Austria

Series: Routledge Advances in Sociology

This book explores contemporary club and dance cultures as a manifestation of aesthetic and prosthetic forms of life. Rief addresses the questions of how practices of clubbing help cultivate particular forms of reflexivity and modes of experience, and how these shape new devices for reconfiguring the boundaries around youth cultural and other social identities. She contributes empirical analyses of how such forms of experience are mediated by the particular structures of night-clubbing economies, the organizational regulation and the local organization of experience in club spaces, the media discourses and imageries, the technologies intervening into the sense system of the body (e.g. music, visuals, drugs) and the academic discourses on dance culture. Although the book draws from local club scenes in London and elsewhere in the UK, it also reflects on similarities and differences between nightclubbing cultures across geographical contexts.

A well-

written and thoroughly researched urban history that makes a valuable contribution to the field. Highly recommended.’ T.A. Aiello, CHOICE, February 2009 Branding New York traces the rise of New York City as a brand and the resultant transformation of urban politics and public life. Greenberg addresses the role of ‘image’ in urban history, showing who produces brands and how, and demonstrates the enormous consequences of branding. She shows that the branding of New York was not simply a marketing tool; rather it was a political strategy meant to legitimatize market-based solutions over social objectives.

The Integration Debate

Competing Futures for American Cities

Edited by Chester Hartman, Poverty and Race Research Action Council, USA and Gregory D. Squires, George Washington University, USA

Racial integration, and policies intended to achieve greater integration, continue to generate controversy in the United States, with some of the most heated debates taking place among long-standing advocates of racial equality. Today, many nonwhites express what has been referred to as ‘integration exhaustion’ as they question the value of integration in today’s world. And many whites exhibit what has been labeled race fatigue’, arguing that we have done enough to reconcile the races. Many policies have been implemented in efforts to open up traditionally restricted neighborhoods, while others have been designed to diversify traditionally poor, often nonwhite, neighborhoods. Still, racial segregation persists, along with the many social costs of such patterns of uneven development. This book explores both long-standing and emerging controversies over the nation’s ongoing struggles with discrimination and segregation. More urgently, it offers guidance on how these barriers can be overcome to achieve truly balanced and integrated living patterns.

Cohesion and Community in Contemporary Hong Kong

Ray Forrest, University of Bristol, UK, Adrienne La Grange and Ngai Ming Yip, both at City University of Hong Kong

Series: Routledge Contemporary Southeast Asia This is an impressive account of Hong Kong’s contemporary social and spatial structure, exploring issues of community, neighbourhood and social division.

Hong Kong’s policy and political history, its essentially mono-cultural environment and its unique topography and built form have produced a rather different social milieu to make Hong Kong quite distinct from other major cities. In exploring these issues the book will also engage with a number of other topical debates in urban policy, social policy and sociology such as:

•what does community mean these days?

•do people think of themselves as neighbourly and have a sense of local belonging in the midst of this dominant discourse of globalization and more diffuse social networks?

•what can we learn from Hong Kong as regards social and environmental sustainability?

The authors of this fascinating text fuse locally based research on Hong Kong neighbourhoods with more macro level urban political economy to produce a comprehensive and up-to-date account of social and behavioral change in what is one of the most widely recognized urban landscapes in the world.

Disrupted Cities

When Infrastructure Fails

Edited by Stephen Graham, Durham University, UK

Bringing together leading researchers from geography, political science, sociology, public policy and technology studies, Disrupted Cities exposes the politics of well-known disruptions such as devastation of New Orleans in 2005, the global SARS outbreak in 2002-3, and the great power collapse in the North Eastern US in 2003. But the book also excavates the politics of more hidden disruptions: the clogging of city sewers with fat; the day-to-day infrastructural collapses which dominate urban life in much of the global south; the deliberate devastation of urban infrastructure by state militaries; and the ways in which alleged threats of infrastructural disruption have been used to radically reorganize cities as part of the ‘War on Terror’.

Accessible, topical and state-of-the art, Disrupted Cities will be required reading for anyone interested in the intersections of technology, security and urban life as we plunge headlong into this quintessentially urban century. The book’s blend of cutting-edge theory with visceral events means that it will be particularly useful for illuminating urban courses within geography, sociology, planning, anthropology, political science, public policy, architecture and technology studies.

Urban Design and the British Urban RenaissanceEdited by John Punter , University of Cardiff, UK This critical review of how the

Edited by John Punter, University of Cardiff, UK

This critical review of how the urban design dimension of the urban renaissance was developed and applied is based on expert academic assessments of progress in the 13 largest British cities. This includes four distinct areas of London, the eight ‘core’ English cities, and the four ‘Celtic capitals’ where local variants of the urban renaissance were developed. The case studies are preceded by a dissection of New Labour’s renaissance agenda, and concluded by a synthesis of city achievements and failings, and their wider implications for the future of planning and design.

The different responses of each city, their varied physical, economic and social character and styles of governance and planning, and their contrasting design achievements and shortcomings provide a fascinating insight into how urban design is progressing in Britain. Their combined experiences highlight what needs to happen to consolidate the progress of the urban renaissance, and ensure its inclusiveness and sustainability. This book is essential reading for students and professionals of urban design and urban planning, and for all those who wish to improve the quality of the British urban environment.

Re-Shaping Cities

How Global Mobility Transforms Architecture and Urban Form

Edited by Michael Guggenheim and Ola Söderström, University of Neuchatel, Switzerland

Series: Architext

This original collection examines how architectural ideas, social models and building forms circulate round the world and become mediated and adapted to local conditions. The book shows how types such as skyscrapers, mosques or living history museums are imported, adapted and contested in different societies and how urban landscapes are reshaped by the global circulation of models drawn from elsewhere.

Written by scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds – architecture, anthropology, geography, literature, science studies and sociology the book draws its inspiration from a series of different approaches and offers both original theoretical reflection and carefully crafted case-studies.

Britain’s New Towns

Garden Cities to Sustainable Communities

Anthony Alexander, Alan Baxter and Associates, London, UK

The New Towns Programme of 1946 to 1970 was one of the most substantial periods of urban development in Britain. The New Towns have often been described as a social experiment; so what has this experiment proved?

This book covers the story of how these towns came to be built, how they aged, and the challenges and opportunities they now face as they begin phases of renewal. The new approaches in design throughout their past development reflect changes in society throughout the latter half of the twentieth century. These changes are now at the heart of the challenge of sustainable development.

The New Towns provide lessons for social, economic and environmental sustainability. These lessons are of great relevance for the regeneration of twentieth century urbanism and the creation of new urban developments today.

International Perspectives

Edited by John Diamond, Edge Hill University, UK, Joyce Liddle, Nottingham Trent University, UK, Alan Southern, University of Liverpool, UK and Philip Osei, University of West Indies, Jamacia

Series: Routledge Advances in Management and Business Studies This book was born out of the need to ‘capture’ the experience and understanding of the regeneration management process that is neither UK centric nor centered exclusively on urban areas. Written by experts working in the USA, Holland, Greece, Jamaica, Turkey, Spain, Trinidad and the Czech Republic, this book seeks to locate the issue of regeneration in a context which will enable the reader to reflect upon practices which are ‘local’ but are shaped by international processes.

As well as proving an accessible review of the theoretical literature on globalization and its impact upon managing regeneration initiatives, this book also illustrates these theoretical debates with specific examples which provide insight to both urban and rural developments. This book will be of great interest to students, researchers and practitioners engaged in regeneration management, providing a thematic exploration and examination of the ‘global’ regeneration experience.

Series: RTPI Library Series

Reviewing the limitations of various planning options, this book addresses the debate on how to preserve open space in the context of a growing metropolis.

The importance of open spaces for well-being in urban life is well-established. With case studies on internalization and valuation methods, this book critically examines the liberal discourse that urges the transfer of responsibility for open space from government to the market.

European and American expert authors confront political rhetoric with grounded analysis and conclude that the market needs to be combined with governmental efforts. They scrutinize the connection between open space and the planning institutions designed to implement its policy. The book provides practical pieces of insight in how to structure an open space problem, information on what to expect from instruments, and new ideas on alternative approaches.

Urban Regeneration and Renewal

Edited by Andrew Tallon, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

Series: Critical Concepts in Urban Studies

The pursuit of regeneration and renewal has played an important role in the history and development of the world’s cities, and the theoretical and applied issues around these critical concepts are of increasing importance to governments and local populations, as well as to urban professionals and scholars. Particularly in postwar North America and Western Europe, this growing concern has often resulted from the decay and deterioration of cities associated with the decline in traditional industries and the associated loss of employment, and populations, to the suburbs and beyond.
