The New Blackwell Companion to the City

Drawing together leading scholars from a variety of academic disciplines, this entirely new collection of commissioned essays reports the leading edge of research and analysis into the contemporary urban condition. With more than half of the world´s population living in urban environments, cities are places of huge complexity and diversity and the processes, networks, and structures that bind them together reach out across the globe.

This volume considers the state of the city and contemporary urbanization from a range of intellectual and international perspectives. Whilst considering established themes, such as urban divisions and differences, publics and cultures, politics and planning, The New Blackwell Companion to the City also addresses new debates concerning materiality, mobilities, affect, and the environment. Incorporating international examples from the US to Europe, and China to South Africa, this book explores the economic, social, cultural, environmental, and political issues that flow from and within the modern city.
