Routledge Critical Introductions to Urbanism and the City
The series is designed to allow undergraduate readers to make sense of, and find a critical way into, urbanism. It will:
* cover a broad range of themes
* reconsider cities in relation to a specific theme
* introduce key ideas and sources
* allow the author to articulate her/his own position.
* introduce complex arguments clearly and accessibly
* bridge disciplines, and theory and practice
* be affordable and well designed
The series will cover social, political, economic, cultural and spatial concerns. It will appeal to students in architecture, cultural studies, geography, popular culture, sociology, urban studies, urban planning. While being firmly situated in the present, it also introduces material from the cities of modernity and post-modernity which, has fed into that position. Each volume will approach cities in a trans-disciplinary way.
