  • Everything is on the Moveby Stephan Conermann

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 42.09

    In this volume, we try to understand the ?Mamluk Empire? not as a confined space but as a region where several nodes of different networks existed side-by-side and at the same time.

    After more than a century of heroic urban visions, urban dwellers today live in suburban subdivisions, gated communities, edge cities, apartment towers, and slums.
