    Temple University Press 2013; US$ 29.95

     The antagonism between urbanist and writer Jane Jacobs and master builder Robert Moses may frame debates over urban form, but in "Building Like Moses with Jacobs in Mind," Scott Larson aims to use the Moses-Jacobs rivalry as a means for examining and understanding the New York City administration's redevelopment strategies and actions. By... more...

    The contemporary regime of globalisation and neoliberalism is creating a far-reaching impact on different scales across the world.

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 269.00

    Despite the promising and exciting possibilities presented by new and fast-developing remote sensing technologies applied to urban areas, there is still a gap perceived between the generally academic and research-focused spectrum of results offered by the ?urban remote sensing? community and the application of these data and products by the local... more...

  • Applied Urban Analysisby Ian Cullen

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    Much of the theoretical literature in planning and human geography at present is materialist in perspective. This offers a powerful critique but locates the dynamics of urban systems too specifically in just one basic social relationship. It fails to provide an intellectual base broad enough for constructive, detailed urban analysis, partly because... more...

  • The Art of City Makingby Charles Landry

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 45.95

    City-making is an art, not a formula. The skills required to re-enchant the city are far wider than the conventional ones like architecture, engineering and land-use planning. There is no simplistic, ten-point plan, but strong principles can help send good city-making on its way. The vision for 21st century cities must be to be the most imaginative... more...

  • Augmented Urban Spacesby Dr Alessandro Aurigi; Dr Fiorella De Cindio; Professor Matthew Carmona

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2012; US$ 149.95

    There have been numerous possible scenarios depicted on the impact of the internet on urban spaces. Considering ubiquitous/pervasive computing, mobile, wireless connectivity and the acceptance of the Internet as a non-extraordinary part of our everyday lives mean that physical urban space is augmented, and digital in itself. This poses new problems... more...
