Urban Geography a comprehensive introduction to a variety of issues relating to contemporary urban geography, including patterns and processes of urbanization, urban development, urban planning, and life experiences in modern cities.

  • Reveals both the diversity of ordinary urban geographies and the networks, flows and relations which increasingly connect cities and urban spaces at the global scale
  • Uses the city as a lens for proposing and developing critical concepts which show how wider social processes, relations, and power structures are changing
  • Considers the experiences, lives, practices, struggles, and words of ordinary urban residents and marginalized social groups rather than exclusively those of urban elites
  • Shows readers how to develop critical perspectives on dominant neoliberal representations of the city and explore the great diversity of urban worlds
