This fascinating book explains the processes of suburbanization in the context of post-socialist societies transitioning from one system of socio-spatial order to another. Case studies of seven Central and Eastern Europe city regions illuminate growth patterns and key conditions for the emergence of sprawl.

  • Breaks new ground, offering a systematic approach to the analysis of the global phenomenon of suburbanization in a post-socialist context
  • Tracks the boom of the post-socialist suburbs in seven CEE capital city regions – Budapest, Ljubljana, Moscow, Prague, Sofia, Tallinn, and Warsaw
  • Situates the experience of the CEE countries in the broader context of global urban change
  • Case studies examine the phenomenon of suburbanization along four main vectors of analysis related to development patterns, driving forces, consequences and impacts, and management of suburbanization
  • Highlights the critical importance of public policies and planning on the spread of suburbanization
