  • Die subjektive Seite der Stadtby

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 49.99

    Die wissenschaftliche Thematisierung städtischer Entwicklung bzw. lokalen Wandels vernachlässigt häufig die Eigenlogik und Eigendynamik der lokalen Ebene und die Gestaltungswirkung lokaler Akteure. Problematisch daran ist, dass einerseits komplexe und variable Akteurs-Institutionen-Geflechte und die auf sie einwirkenden, sich verändernden Einflussfaktoren,... more...

  • Quartiersforschungby

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2008; US$ 59.99

    Wohnviertel, Stadtquartiere, Kieze: Für BewohnerInnen sind sie nicht mehr und nicht weniger als die lokale Verankerung in der (Groß)stadt und der globalisierten Welt. In der Wissenschaft gibt es inzwischen vielfältige Diskurse über den lokalen Nahraum, nicht zuletzt im Kontext raumtheoretischer Debatten. Aber auch als strategische Planungskategorie... more...

  • Intersectionality und Kritikby

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2012; US$ 39.95

    Die bisherigen Debatten um Intersectionality haben gezeigt, dass sich eine kontextunabhängige Definition von Intersektionalität nicht angeben lässt. Darüber hinaus bezeugt das ungebrochene Interesse an dieser Debatte, dass es eines kritischen Reflexionsinstrumentes von Ungleichheit und Differenz in Wissenschaft und Politik bedarf. Was also ist das... more...

  • Sharing the Cityby John Abbott

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    While the rate of urbanisation in the developing world has increased dramatically over the past 20 years, governments' capacity to support urban growth has, in many cases, failed to keep up with this trend. Non-governmental organisations working in the field have long advocated community management of the urban environment as the best solution to this... more...

  • Culture and Planningby Dr Simone Abram

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 114.95

    Illustrated by a wide range of case studies from planning contexts, this book examines culture as a socio-historically situated concept, introducing a line of scholarship, both established and recent, to show what 'culture' does and why. It addresses the materialisation of abstract concepts, performance and embodiment, and social categorisation... more...

  • Elusive Promisesby Simone Abram; Gisa Weszkalnys

    Berghahn Books 2013; US$ 70.00

    Planning in contemporary democratic states is often understood as a range of activities, from housing to urban design, regional development to economic planning. This volume sees planning differently-as the negotiation of possibilities that time offers space. It explores what kind of promise planning offers, how such a promise is made, and what... more...

    International Monetary Fund 2014; US$ 9.00

    KEY ISSUES Setting: The seeds of good governance and prudent macroeconomic and natural resources management planted by the Botswana authorities paid off with an impressive increase in the GDP per capita during the last three decades. However, as in many other small middle-income countries (SMICs) in the region, trend growth has softened in recent... more...

  • The Network Societyby Louis Albrechts; Seymour Mandelbaum

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 75.95

    In a clear and rewarding style, Albrechts and Mandelbaum consider the challenges that the new paradigm of the Network Society creates for Urban and Regional Planning.
