Lewis Fried
Изд-во: University of Massachusetts Press, 1990, 256 с.
The book is not about cities, it deals with writing about cities. The author is concerned with how individuals portray the city and how they make use of the social and literary traditions they find pertinent. He focuses on Jacob A. Riis, Lewis Mumford, James T. Farrell, and Paul Goodman, four American thinkers whose works are almost wholly given over to discussion about the desirable city and its community

Peter Saunders
Изд-во: Routledge, 2006, 462 с.
"Social Theory and the Urban Question" offers a guide to, and a critical evaluation of key themes in contemporary urban social theory, as well as a re-examination of more traditional approaches in the light of recent developments and criticism. Dr. Saunders discusses current theoretical positions in the context of the work of Marx, Weber and Durkheim. He suggests that later writers have often misunderstood or ignored the arguments of these 'founding fathers' of the urban question. Dr. Saunders uses his final chapter to apply the lessons learned from a review of their work in order to develop a new framework for urban social and political analysis. This book was first published in 1981

Urban sociology is a long-established field for research and teaching, yet its importance and even its existence as a specialty are in jeopardy. As increasing numbers of people come to live in urban places and as those remaining on the farm become urban or semiurban in their outlook and behavior, urban sociology is coming to be nearly synonymous with general sociology. What then is the justification, if any, for the continuation of urban sociology as a special subject within sociology? What contribution to man's knowledge can urban sociology make that cannot be made as well by another field? If no answer can be offered and supported, then urban sociologists, urban sociological research, and urban sociology courses perforce merge conceptually with other sociologists and sociologies.

Urban social movements have traditionally been seen as being preoccupied with local issues, and as a result have been marginalized in the wider study of social movements. However, the increasing globalization of cities, the international flows of people, money and policy, have meant that the local issues urban movements engage with are becoming less parochial and more global. This collection deals with the transformation of urban movements in these new social, economic and political environments.

Malcolm Miles, Tim Hall
London, New York: Routledge, 2003, 280 с.
This collection brings together commentaries from a wide range of contemporary disciplines relevant to urban culture, form and society. The book concerns cities in the broadest sense, not just as buildings and spaces, but also as processes and events or sites of occupation, in which meanings are constructed in many ways. The contributors draw on their specialist areas of research to inform current debate, but they also speculate as to how cities will be shaped in the 21st century. Specific areas of research include homeless people's organizations, restoration ecology, post-industrial urban landscapes, cyberspace as a site (or not) of community, post-industrial economics, tourism, cultural planning and the relation of urbanization and bio-physics.

The presentation of material from diverse locations such as Toronto, Philadelphia, Beirut, Jakarta, Tehran, Osaka and Albuquerque presents a unique opportunity for comparative analysis of ethnicity and spatial patterns.

Spiro Kostof
Изд-во: Thames & Hudson Ltd, 1999, 352 с.
Cities are among the most enduring and remarkable of human artefacts. This study explains how and why cities took the shape they did. Professor Kostof focuses on a number of themes - organic patterns, the grid, the city as diagram, the grand manner and the skyline - and interprets the hidden order of urban patterns. Photographs, historical views and specially commissioned drawings depict a global mosaic of citybuilding: the shaping of medieval Siena; the creation of New Delhi as the crown of the Raj; the remodelling of Moscow as the self-styled capital of world socialism and the transformation of the skyline as religious and civic symbols yield to the towers of corporate business.

Изд-во: Nordic Africa Institute, 2001, 320 с.
The book contains 17 chapters with material from 13 African countries, from Egypt to Swaziland and from Senegal to Kenya. Most of the authors are young African academics. The focus of the volume is the multitude of voluntary associations that has emerged in African cities in recent years. In many cases, they are a response to mounting poverty, failing infrastructure and services, and more generally, weak or abdicating urban governments. Some associations are new, in other cases, existing organizations are taking on new tasks. Associations may be neighbourhood-based, others may be city-wide and based on professional groupings or a shared ideology or religion. Still others have an ethnic base. Some of these organizations are engaged in both day-to-day matters of urban management and more long-term urban development. Urban associations challenge the monopoly of local and central government institutions.

Examining the variable image of the ideal residential area, the author identifies four common "ideal" neighbourhood types. Detailing the characteristics of these "good neighbourhoods", he argues that their coexistence in a single urban environment is both possible and desirable.

Изд-во: Routledge, 2005, 178 с.
Contemporary discourse emphasizes the irrational, unconscious, discursive and displace experiences of city life. Discussion of conscious agency is minimal and is often confined to small acts of resistance. Reason in the City of Difference re-establishes a strong notion of conscious agency in our understanding of urban life. Through philosophical and empirical exploration, the book examines how the city has been shaped by reason--through the technical rationality of urban planning and through the profound social and spatial effects of economic rationality. It argues that we get a view of the oppressiveness of cities from a preoccupation with the effects of narrow instrumental rationality. If we see rationality in a wider context, as cultural and expressive, then the city has emancipatory potential through its diversity. Using a range of empirical examples and drawing particularly on pragmatist ideas of 'experience' and rationality the Reason in the City of Difference offers a new, alternative reading of the city.

Judith Welch Wegner, John Charles Boger
Изд-во: Scholarly Book Services Inc, 2002, 614 с.
Precise connections between race, poverty, and the condition of America's cities are drawn in this collection of seventeen essays. Policymakers and scholars from a variety of disciplines analyze the plight of the urban poor since the riots of the 1960s and the resulting 1968 Kerner Commission Report on the status of African Americans. In essays addressing health care, education, welfare, and housing policies, the contributors reassess the findings of the report in light of developments over the last thirty years, including the Los Angeles riots of 1992. Some argue that the long-standing obstacles faced by the urban poor cannot be removed without revitalizing inner-city neighborhoods; others emphasize strategies to break down racial and economic isolation and promote residential desegregation throughout metropolitan areas.

Guided by a historical perspective, the contributors propose a new combination of economic and social policies to transform cities while at the same time improving opportunities and outcomes for inner-city residents. This approach highlights the close links between progress for racial minorities and the overall health of cities and the nation as a whole.
