    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 64.95

    Urban and regional planning programs aspire to prepare practitioners to write and implement plans, primarily at the local level of government.

  • Legislating Privacyby Priscilla M. Regan

    The University of North Carolina Press 2000; US$ 29.99

    While technological threats to personal privacy have proliferated rapidly, legislation designed to protect privacy has been slow and incremental.

  • Urban Governance in Southern Europeby Abel Albet; Joćo Seixas

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The concept of governance has evolved into one of the most important but also controversial concepts in urban politics. While it encourages co-operation, participation and collective construction, at the same time, it has brought about new forms of public demission, oligarchic regimes and less local democracy. The dilemmas accompanying these changes... more...

  • Water Governance as Connective Capacityby Nanny Bressers; Jurian Edelenbos

  • Urban Interstices: The Aesthetics and the Politics of the In-betweenby Andrea Mubi Brighenti

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Bringing together a team of international scholars with an interest in urban transformations, spatial justice and territoriality, this volume questions how the interstice is related to the emerging processes of partitioning, enclave-making and zoning, showing how in-between spaces are intimately related to larger flows, networks, territories and boundaries.... more...
