Cities of Europe : changing contexts, local arrangements, and the challenge to urban cohesion
Part of the IJURR Studies in Urban and Social Change Book Series series
Cities of Europe is a unique combination of book and CD-Rom examining the effects of changing contexts on the spatial and political arrangements of western European cities.
Comprising a series of contributions by well known scholars from the field of urban studies, the book makes an important contribution to debates about the nature of current socio-economic transformations, the tensions to which they are giving rise, and how western European urban societies are dealing with them.
Individual chapters discuss issues such as the distinctive identity of these cities, whether or not segregation is emerging, and what sort of local policies are developing to deal with social exclusion and poverty.
The CD-Rom accompanying the book features a series of 2000 pictures from seventeen cities, as well as 126 thematic maps, interviews with established scholars and literature reviews.
Individual chapters are linked to the CD-Rom through an extensive cross-referencing system.
