In recent decades, the majority of the world’s population has become urban dwelling. We have arguably entered a period of planetary urbanisation. More specifically we have seen unprecedented urbanization in the Global South, the threat of climate change, uneven economic development and increased integration of cities and regions via information technology. Making sense of this complex and fast changing landscape can be a daunting prospect. The Routledge urban collection draws together the very best authors and writing on the contemporary urban condition to help readers navigate and keep abreast of developments. Titles cover the full gamut of contemporary concerns such as cities in the Global South, globalizing cities, smart cities, sustainability, biodiversity, transitions, justice, violence, mobilities, governance, health and public space.
