現代欧州における都市部のテロリズム
Karcher, Katharina / Dimcheva, Yordanka et al. (eds.), Urban Terrorism in Contemporary Europe: Remembering, Imagining and Anticipating Violence. 247 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-729>
ISBN 978-3-031-53788-2 hard ¥11,711.- (税込) EUR 49.99

This open access book sheds light on collective practices of remembering, imagining and anticipating in relation to recent acts of urban terrorism in Europe. Analysing a range of personal and collective responses to urban terrorism in contemporary Europe, this book shows that current debates on this issue are shaped by multiple co-existing and intersecting memories of political violence in the past. Moreover, despite public declarations of unity and solidarity, collective memories of urban terror in contemporary Europe are far from consensual - memory can be both a catalyst for and an impediment to social and political change. The analyses in this book reveal that memory can be both at the same time. Drawing on case studies from a range of European countries and art representations from survivors, artists, and poets, this interdisciplinary volume introduces readers to key methods (e.g. discourse analysis and (auto-)ethnography) and concepts (e.g. Lieux de Memoire and 'grassroots memorials') for the study of the memoralization of terror attacks.

Tay, Eddie, Creative Practice as a Way of Life: After Barthes. (Palgrave Studies in Creativity and Culture) 186 pp. 2024:3 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-799>
ISBN 978-3-031-52250-5 hard ¥9,368.- (税込) EUR 39.99

This book combines autoethnographic reflections, poetry, and photography with the aim to bridge the gap between creative practice and scholarly research. Drawing on an innovative combination of different forms of knowledge, creative writing and street photographs are presented as means to reflect on the development of knowledge and self-knowledge through a thought-provoking dialogue with Roland Barthes' post-structuralist work. What does it mean to be a creative practitioner in a world traversed by values of capitalism and artificial intelligence? What does it mean to teach creative practices in such an environment?The urban landscape of Singapore, with the Jewel Changi mall, the Universal Studios, and Little India in the background, is the stage where the capitalist demands of modern city life grapple with the solitary act of writing poetry and taking photographs through the personal experience of the author. Capitalist realism and depression realism entwine with Barthes' notion of vita nova in a mesmerizing phantasmagoria that drags the reader to the bowels and secret pleasures of the creative process.

Brewer, Cam / Hammond, Herb / Markey, Sean, Nature-First Cities: Restoring Relationships with Ecosystems and with Each Other. 224 pp. 2024:8 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-901>
ISBN 978-0-7748-6864-8 paper ¥8,613.- (税込) US$ 39.95

Nature belongs in cities, but how do we put nature first without pushing people aside? Nature-First Cities reveals the false dichotomy of that question by recognizing that people and nature are indivisible. Western urbanization has meant the ongoing expulsion of nature, which is engendering biodiversity loss and inequality, thwarting economic potential, and affecting health. This volume instead applies the science and practice of nature-directed stewardship to cities. Tested through case studies, this methodology for urban ecosystem restoration is uniquely effective at revitalizing our strained cities. Nature is woven into networks, distributed equitably across neighbourhoods, and partnered with the urban density that is essential for addressing the climate crisis. Nature-First Cities offers a practical framework for urban planning that reinforces our place in nature both physically, by ensuring that cities are replete with biodiversity and intact ecosystems, and conceptually, by rebalancing our relationships with the planet and with one another.

Beatley, Timothy, The Ethics of Cities: Shaping Policy for a Sustainable and Just Future. 256 pp. 2024:4 (U. North Carolina Pr., US) <722-930>
ISBN 978-1-4696-7862-7 hard ¥21,344.- (税込) US$ 99.00
ISBN 978-1-4696-7863-4 paper ¥6,025.- (税込) US$ 27.95

Ethical dilemmas and value conflicts affect cities globally, but urban leaders and citizens often avoid confronting them directly and instead view the governance of cities as primarily an administrative task or, even worse, a merely political one. Timothy Beatley challenges readers to consider the issues in our cities not simply as legal or economic problems but as moral ones, asking readers "How can a city become more ethical?" Beatley unearths, exposes, and explores the many ethical questions cities face today and touches on many topics, from privacy and crime to racism and the ethics of public space. Drawing from recent policy debates and using extensive examples to consider complex ethical dilemmas, Beatley argues that cities must expand the definition of the moral community to include all their citizens. Cities must take profound steps to address social injustice and plan for climate change-both moral obligations-and this approachable and readable introduction to moral philosophy, urban planning, and social justice will help new generations to grapple with these global issues.

Caselli, Marco / Duerrschmidt, Joerg / Eade, John (eds.), Migrants' (Im)mobilities in Three European Urban Contexts: Global Pandemic and Beyond. (Europe in a Global Context) 226 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-932>
ISBN 978-3-031-53772-1 hard ¥30,455.- (税込) EUR 129.99

This book analyses the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on three ethnic minorities in three European cities: Bangladeshi in London, Turks in Stuttgart and Peruvians in Milan. Considerable debate has emerged during the pandemic concerning its impact on minorities, and although considerable quantitative data has been generated by epidemiologists, qualitative studies also have great relevance, socially and culturally as well as institutionally. While in normal circumstances the position of migrant communities is associated with unequal access to scarce resources such as wealth, power and social prestige, the coronavirus pandemic shifted the focus to more specific variables: living in segmented or overcrowded conditions, working in jobs with higher risk exposure, difficulties with online schooling, and lack of access to health care and information.The book will therefore be of interest to researchers and students of sociology, anthropology, global studies, migration and urban studies.

Condon, Patrick, Broken City: Land Speculation, Inequality, and Urban Crisis. 274 pp. 2024:5 (U. British Columbia Pr., CN) <722-934>
ISBN 978-0-7748-6955-3 paper ¥7,103.- (税込) US$ 32.95

How can urban housing, and the land underneath, now account for half of all global wealth? According to Patrick Condon, the simple answer is that land has become an asset rather than a utility. If the rich only indulged themselves with gold, jewels, and art, we wouldn't have a global housing crisis. But once global capital markets realized land was a good speculative investment, runaway housing costs ensued. In just one city, Vancouver, land prices increased by 600 percent between 2008 and 2016. How much wealth have investors extracted from urban land? In this engaging, readable, and clearly reasoned treatise, Patrick Condon explains how we have let land, our most durable resource, shift away from the common good - and proposes bold strategies that cities in North America could use to shift it back.

Eaves, LaToya E. / Nast, H. J. / Papadopoulos, A. G. (eds.), Spatial Futures: Difference and the Post-Anthropocene. 434 pp. 2024:5 (Palgrave Macmillan, UK) <722-935>
ISBN 978-981-9997-60-2 hard ¥35,141.- (税込) EUR 149.99

Spatial Futures invites readers to imagine power and freedom through the lens of the 'Black Outdoors', a transdisciplinary spatial concept that operates beyond the planetary, stratigraphic confines of the 'Anthropocene'. The chapters collectively point to the ontological-epistemological contradictions involved in forging liberatory spatial futures. Bringing new spatial imaginaries to bear in and outside geography, the book refuses the strictures of the 'cenic', entertaining difference as world-making.

社会的インフラ・ハンドブック
Renner, Anna-Theresa / Plank, Leonhard / Getzner, M. (eds.), Handbook of Social Infrastructure: Conceptual and Empirical Research Perspectives. 432 pp. 2024:6 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-939>
ISBN 978-1-80088-312-3 hard ¥57,051.- (税込) GB£ 205.00

This timely Handbook showcases cutting-edge empirical and theoretical social science research to shed light on the role, aims and functioning of social infrastructure (SI). Leading scholars present unique insights on topics such as healthcare, childcare, education, employment, and SI for marginalised groups alongside cultural and recreational infrastructures.Ongoing global and regional crises have underscored the significance of SI services and facilities in enhancing individual well-being, social cohesion and equality. With this central tenet in mind, contributing authors challenge traditional views on public welfare systems throughout the Handbook to take into account the climate, care and housing crises. They provide an in-depth examination of the concept of SI and how it relates to different strands of research such as welfare state analysis and urbanism, connecting the field with other emerging strands of conceptualising socio-economic processes such as the foundational economy approach.Paving the way for further research, the Handbook of Social Infrastructure is a vital resource for students and scholars of sociology, regional and urban economics, cities, urban planning and geography, and public sector economics and finance. Policymakers will find it equally beneficial to inform their understanding of spatial planning, economic and social policies.

Song, Jing, Individual Resilience to Urban Flooding and the Implications for Urban Management. 191 pp. 2024:3 (Springer, GW) <722-940>
ISBN 978-981-9705-45-0 hard ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99

This book argues that the substantial life and property loss caused by urban flooding might not be a pure result of a vulnerable physical environment-social factors, especially the individual attributes and capacities, could have pivotal roles to play in the resilience discourse as well. In light of this, this research investigates the relationship between individual resilience to urban flooding and urban management, endeavoring to identify place-responsive measures for building resilience for residents vulnerable to urban flooding.

Wassenhoven, Louis C., Spatial Planning as Institutional Design: European Countries Amid Economic Crisis and Austerity. (Elgar Studies in Planning Theory, Policy and Practice) 352 pp. 2024:8 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-943>
ISBN 978-1-03-533905-1 hard ¥32,004.- (税込) GB£ 115.00

This book focuses on the urban and regional planning systems in Europe under conditions of economic crisis and austerity. Spatial Planning as Institutional Design examines the structure and legislation of these systems throughout the twentieth century as well as the decade before the 2008 economic and fiscal crisis and the years of recovery following it.Louis C. Wassenhoven provides critical analysis of spatial planning systems within Europe and reviews the theories of these institutions and their design. Using his personal experience as a member of a law-making committee in Greece, Wassenhoven illustrates the idea that spatial planning is an important component of a modern democratic state. Defining legal frameworks as an act of institutional design, the book further explores insightful findings through extensive country studies and the lessons to be learnt in the future.This engaging read is of particular significance to scholars of spatial planning, social science and planning law. Researchers and policy makers interested in territorial development and land use will also find the analysis informative.

Weber, Florian / Kuehne, Olaf / Dittel, Julia (eds.), Transformation Processes in Europe and Beyond: Perspectives for Horizontal Geographies. (Regionale Geographien / Regional Geographies) 681 pp. 2024:7 (Springer VS, GW) <722-944>
ISBN 978-3-658-42893-8 paper ¥21,083.- (税込) EUR 89.99

Europe and the world in all their diversity and complexity have always been - and continue to be - in a state of change. Recent (geo)political, environmental, social, and economic developments demonstrate a world in constant flux. These ever-changing framework conditions require corresponding transformations in many different structures. This anthology takes these observations as a starting point to illuminate theoretical perspectives, methodological approaches, and empirical insights related to recent transformation processes in Europe and beyond - with a special focus in this respect on the USA. In view of their comprehensive nature, transformation processes cannot be analysed from a single perspective - a uniform approach or theory would fail to address their complexity and contingency. In this sense, "horizontal geographies" serves as our theoretical framework. The concept refers to comprehensive, synthesizing regional analyses which collect, structure, and reflect on knowledge with diverse spatial, social, and cultural contexts. The interdisciplinary and international authorship does justice to the idea of horizontal, multi-perspective geographies, and considers a wide range of transformation processes in Europe and beyond.

交通の衡平と移動性の正義研究アジェンダ
Cidell, Julie (ed.), A Research Agenda for Transport Equity and Mobility Justice. (Elgar Research Agendas) 192 pp. 2024:8 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-244>
ISBN 978-1-80220-187-1 hard ¥25,047.- (税込) GB£ 90.00

Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.Who can travel freely? Whose mobility is restricted? What other inequities contribute to and arise from these differences in movement? Taking a truly global approach, this Research Agenda tackles these questions in settings from London to Hanoi, and Chicago to eThekwini, and transport modes from motorbikes to cars to pedestrians to cyclists.With a look towards new technologies and transitions, this Research Agenda encourages deep thinking about how traditional ways of providing mobility create power imbalances and entrench existing inequalities. By considering individual experiences and questioning long-held assumptions, chapter authors suggest how we can transform our transport systems to be more just, and to deliver their economic, social, and environmental benefits more widely and equitably.It is a critical read for those across the social sciences interested in transport and mobilities including human geography, urban planning, anthropology and sociology scholars, as well as those working in the field of transport more broadly looking to better understand the importance of transport equity.

激動の時代の移動性
Ferreira, Antonio, Mobilities in a Turbulent Era. (In a Turbulent Era) 240 pp. 2024:6 (E. Elgar, UK) <722-245>
ISBN 978-1-03-532225-1 hard ¥26,438.- (税込) GB£ 95.00

Exploring the complexities of mobility, this book questions prevailing views, highlights the risks and implications of mobility-centred policies, and argues for nuanced approaches to addressing mobility-related societal challenges.In its seven chapters, the book examines the paradoxical nature of mobility, questions the dominance of competitive individualism, scrutinises the meritocratic principles that shape our society and mobility patterns, and ventures a glimpse into a speculative future of cyborg existence. Through metaphors from various fields and insurgent critical analyses, it underscores the need for a nuanced approach to issues of mobility and exposes the lack of sophistication in the prevailing pro-growth and innovation-driven transport developments. With a strong focus on social justice, at its core, the book calls for a reassessment of mobility-centred policies and practices, highlighting the terrible risks - but also the remarkable benefits - that mobility represents.Diverse and interdisciplinary in nature, the critical approach taken in this means it will appeal not only to scholars in the mobility studies field but also to social scientists and policy makers more broadly concerned with the impact and dynamics of mobility on society.

Schoburgh, Eris D / McFarlane, Tracy A. et al. (eds.), Sustainable Urbanisation in the Caribbean. (Urban Planning and Environment) 352 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-792>
ISBN 978-1-03-258685-4 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Sustainable Urbanisation in the Caribbean critically examines the socio-geographic context of island states, prioritising the nuanced experiences of Caribbean island states and territories that are largely considered small island developing states (SIDS), against the backdrop of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).Increases in urban density place enormous pressure on existing infrastructures and natural resources, exacerbating social inequalities and environmental risks. While the UN SDGs aim to mitigate these risks, the reality of implementing these goals in the context of SIDS is complex. Whereas Sustainable Urbanisation in the Caribbean does not claim to be a comprehensive assessment of policy responses to the SDGs, this edited volume seeks to generate problem-focussed, policy-relevant, demand-driven research, thereby permitting the geographical contexts of island states to contribute to the development of proper causal theory about sustainable urbanisation.This book will be of interest to students of public policy, urban sustainability, and climate change, as well as government policy analysts, development practitioners, urban planners, and UN agencies working in SIDS.

Fairfield, John D., Crossing Great Divides: City and Country in Environmental and Political Disorder. (Urban Life, Landscape and Policy) 316 pp. 2024:6 (Temple U. Pr., US) <721-802>
ISBN 978-1-4399-2571-3 hard ¥24,901.- (税込) US$ 115.50
ISBN 978-1-4399-2572-0 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

Ranging across two centuries of American history, Crossing Great Divides argues that the habit of construing city and country as opposites is at the root of our current environmental and political disorder. This oversimplifying dualism has distorted how we planned cities, our patterns of production and consumption, how we deal with waste, and how urban and rural populations perceive each other. Conventional urban environmental reform has made modern city life possible, but it has done little to limit the despoliation of distant places. Nevertheless, the successes of urban environmental reform remind us of what is possible. John Fairfield concludes with a case study of Phoenix, Arizona to demonstrate this dysfunctional relationship between city and country while developing a sympathetic critique of the Green New Deal. He suggests how we might bridge the "great divide" as we face the daunting challenges the twenty-first century is pressing upon us.

Goodling, Erin, Green City Rising: Contamination, Cleanup, and Collective Action. (Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation Series) 277 pp. 2024:5 (U. Georgia Pr., US) <721-804>
ISBN 978-0-8203-6385-1 hard ¥24,783.- (税込) US$ 114.95
ISBN 978-0-8203-6384-4 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

Green City Rising is an ethnographic account of collective organizing for environmental justice in an era of growing concern about environmental and climate challenges. The conventional sustainability paradigm promises improved environmental conditions for all, such as fresh air and clean water, walkable and bikeable neighborhoods, green space access, and protection from climate crises. Yet, without particular interventions, the pursuit of such environmental amenities often contributes to displacement and further harm for communities that have historically borne the brunt of land theft, racial capitalism, and toxic industries. Drawing on the work of an alliance of grassroots organizations called the Portland Harbor Community Coalition (PHCC), Erin Goodling shows how communities have come together across lines of race and class to work for a more just, green future in Portland, Oregon. Green City Rising reveals that the violence of settler colonialism and white supremacy are far from endpoints: a collective vision for a better future is emerging, and ordinary people are building the understanding, skills, and relationships necessary to usher it in.

Contemporary Urban Planning, 12e provides students with an unvarnished and in-depth introduction to the historic, economic, political, legal, ideological, and environmental factors affecting urban planning today.Planning is a highly political activity. Urban and regional planning decisions often involve large sums of money, both public and private, with the potential to deliver large benefits to some and losses to others. The extensively revised edition of this beloved text tackles the most pressing recent issues in urban development including:* current demographic, technological, and lifestyle changes and the possibility for a major turn toward re-urbanization / urban revitalization after decades of decentralization;* an expanded consideration of contemporary means of public participation in planning;* the impact of contemporary social movements on planning, and the rising importance of social equity as a major planning objective;* the affordable housing shortage facing cities in many large US metropolitan areas;* making cities more adaptable to micro-mobility;* environmental goals and the role of planners in responding to global climate change, current public-health challenges, and major environmental catastrophes; and* the effect of varied applications of land use controls and other planning policies in different countries and under different political regimes, with case study examples from the UK, France, Eastern Europe, China, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.This thoroughly updated new edition also benefits from resources to help classroom instruction, both in the text and online. These include discussion and multiple-choice questions, and links for students to online supplemental readings, websites, and media sources. Contemporary Urban Planning is an essential resource for students, city planners, and all who are concerned with the nature of contemporary urban development problems.

Campagnari, Francesco, The Institutionalisation of Civic Initiatives: Practices, Public Effects and Models of Direct Civic Action in Europe. 200 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-598>
ISBN 978-1-03-244748-3 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

The book examines two civic initiatives in Europe and analyses their evolution through the institutionalisation of their practices, local public effects, and established models for action at broader scales.Drawing from the concepts of civic action, problematic situations, public problems, and experience, the book coins the concept of direct civic action to explore civic initiatives beyond sectorial categories. It draws from the histories, everyday activities and encounters with new problematic situations of a Slovak and a French initiative. It analyses the institutionalisation of their internal practices, their public cultural services, the models for action they establish in broader networks of initiatives, and how institutionalisation affects their experimentation and innovation. The book uses two case studies of civic initiatives, in France and Slovakia examining how the experimental and institutionalised approaches to problematic situations of civic initiatives are associated with the generation and continuative reproduction of public goods and policies. It also explores how local initiatives establish national and international networks and models for direct civic action.The book is aimed at scholars interested in civic initiatives, urban planning, public policies, innovation studies, and urban sociology. It is intended to engage members of civic initiatives by offering insights into organisational dynamics and their impact on public issues. Furthermore, it appeals to public officials and policymakers who aim to establish policies that promote civic initiatives and encourage direct civic action.

Bovo, Martina, Migration Landing Spaces: Processes and Infrastructures in Italy. (Routledge Studies in Development, Mobilities and Migration) 162 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <721-627>
ISBN 978-1-03-257866-8 hard ¥13,633.- (税込) GB£ 48.99

This book looks at migrant landing spaces, exploring the processes and infrastructures which people encounter as they navigate urban spaces along the central Mediterranean route.The book argues that there remains a theoretical and practical difficulty in grasping the complexity of migrant arrivals. Migrants are often unsure whether they will stay or leave, their mobility is uncertain. Despite this, they face rigid binaries and categories within administrative policy and planning which tries to pin them down as either permanent or temporary. Drawing on extensive original research in Southern Italy, this book suggests that we should instead think of 'landing spaces': parts of the city that work as infrastructures for landing, that allow for an open and dynamic use of the urban space and provide opportunities for encounter and information exchange as migrants consider their next steps.Combining an ethnographic gaze with insights from urban planning, architecture, geography, social sciences, and migration studies, this book invites us to look closer at the interactions between people, practices, and places as migrants land in Europe.

空間計画とEU
Purkarthofer, Eva, Spatial Planning and the European Union: Europeanisation from Within. (Routledge Advances in Regional Economics, Science and Policy) 232 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-660>
ISBN 978-0-367-68272-9 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

European Union policies are intertwined with all sectors of public administration and governance in the member states, including spatial, urban and regional planning. Legal regulations like the Natura 2000 Directives, funding programmes associated with EU Cohesion Policy or strategies such as the Territorial Agenda 2030 all leave their mark on planning - yet with considerably different effects in Europe's cities and regions.This book serves as a guide to navigate the connection points between EU policies and spatial planning by introducing the logics of EU policymaking and European spatial planning, outlining the most relevant EU policies with relevance for spatial planning and presenting examples from Austria and Finland how EU policies are applied in domestic contexts. By exploring the Europeanisation of spatial planning 'from within', the book acknowledges how differential ideas about what spatial planning is and what role the EU plays therein shape the actualised impacts of EU policies. By providing a comprehensive perspective on the relevance of the European Union for spatial planning, this book is ideal for students, academics and administrators who want to grasp how the EU shapes and affects planning practice in Europe's cities and regions.

Demgenski, Philipp, Seeking a Future for the Past: Space, Power, and Heritage in a Chinese City. (China Understandings Today) 296 pp. 2024:2 (U. Michigan Pr., US) <721-687>
ISBN 978-0-472-07637-6 hard ¥17,248.- (税込) US$ 80.00
ISBN 978-0-472-05637-8 paper ¥7,535.- (税込) US$ 34.95

Seeking a Future for the Past: Space, Power, and Heritage in a Chinese City examines the complexities and changing sociopolitical dynamics of urban renewal in contemporary China. Drawing on ten years of ethnographic fieldwork in the northeastern Chinese city of Qingdao, the book tells the story of the slow, fragmented, and contentious transformation of Dabaodao-an area in the city's former colonial center-from a place of common homes occupied by the urban poor into a showcase of architectural heritage and site for tourism and consumption. The ethnography provides a nuanced account of the diverse experiences and views of a range of groups involved in, shaping, and being shaped by the urban renewal process-local residents, migrant workers, preservationists, planners, and government officials- and particularly foregrounds the voices and experiences of marginal groups, such as migrants in the city. Unpacking structural reasons for urban developmental impasses, it paints a nuanced local picture of urban governance and political practice in contemporary urban China. Seeking a Future for the Past also weighs the positives and negatives of heritage preservation and scrutinizes the meanings and effects of "preservation" on diverse social actors. By zeroing in on the seemingly contradictory yet coexisting processes of urban stagnation and urban destruction, the book reveals the multifaceted challenges that China faces in reforming its urbanization practices and, ultimately, in managing its urban future.

Kim, Hyung Min, Urban Renewal in Central Seoul: Planning Paradigm Shifts. (Routledge Research in Sustainable Planning and Development in Asia) 184 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-701>
ISBN 978-1-03-233354-0 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

Kim details a brief history of urban renewal in central Seoul through articulating urban planning paradigm shifts. This book illustrates four main themes in central Seoul: the restoration of the Cheonggye stream, the redevelopment of the Sewoon Plaza, the enhancement of walkability and public transport networks, and history-centred urban renewal.Urban renewal is seen as a remedy for urban sprawl and is appreciated for its capacity to make use of pre-existing infrastructure and cultural assets in high-density urban areas. However, it faces critical challenges, such as fragmented property ownership and escalated land prices in comparison to peri-urban areas. The book focuses on how planning policies have shaped the urban renewal process in central Seoul, South Korea. Spatial development policies for central Seoul have been changed from modern transport facilities, post-war reconstruction, informality, and industrialisation to walkability, sustainability, and social cohesion in line with economic restructuring. In recent times, there has been a significant change in thinking towards creating public spaces for walking, preserving historical sites and heritage, and maintaining green spaces. These inter-connected topics contribute to understanding the complexity of urban renewal.A useful read for researchers on urban planning and policies who are keen to understand the complicated process of urban renewal and ways to revitalise economic and human activities and transform built environments.

Obydenkova, Anastassia (ed.), Sustainable Development, Regional Governance, and International Organizations: Implications for Post-Communism. 162 pp. 2024:6 (Routledge, UK) <721-143>
ISBN 978-1-03-274380-6 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book aspires to establish a dialogue among the studies of sustainable development, global environmental politics, comparative regionalism, and area studies of Eurasia. The chapters in this book reflect deep knowledge of the authors of the main trends in environmental politics at global, international, and national levels before the invasion in Ukraine in 2022. First, the book looks into the role and impact of international organizations such as the European Union (EU), European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Arctic Council (AC,) and Global Forums on Climate Action on post-Communist states, but also the role of nation-states (e.g., Russia, Kazakhstan, and China). Second, the book explores relatively new international organizations, such as the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), the Eurasian Development Bank, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). How do the EAEU, EDB, and the SCO matter, if at all, in promoting an environmental agenda? How do the EU, EBRD, and the AC advance the environmental agenda across the post-Communist region? This book aspires to answer these questions and to shed more light on the challenges to sustainable development in post-Communist Europe, Central Asia, and Eurasia.With a new foreword and afterword, this book will appeal to students, scholars and researchers of political science, international relations, area-studies as well as practitioners and policymakers working in international organizations and dealing with challenges of sustainable development. The other chapters were originally published as a special issue of Problems of Post-Communism.

Vincze, Eniko / Florea, Ioana / Aalbers, Manuel B. (eds.), Uneven Real Estate Development in Romania at the Intersection of Deindustrialization and Financialization. (Routledge Critical Studies in Urbanism and the City) 296 pp. 2024:7 (Routledge, UK) <721-146>
ISBN 978-1-03-263144-8 hard ¥36,179.- (税込) GB£ 130.00

This book examines the progression of real estate development within the deindustrialization-financialization nexus. It explores the roles it has in semi-peripheral contexts such as Romania, where it overlaps with the process of the transformation of state socialism into neoliberal capitalism, viewed at the intersection of global, national, and local forces.The book focuses on real estate development in Romania as a product and a driver of capitalism. It contributes to ongoing debates in critical urban theories and Marxist perspectives in urban sociology. Focusing on the under-researched East European region, it decenters social research and better tunes political economy theory about state and economic restructuring. The book contains methodological and theoretical insights that are useful in other contexts beyond Romania and CEE, especially in other (semi)peripheral emerging markets. The focus of critical inquiry into capitalist transformations adopted in this book can also support political activism. It uncovers the varieties of the deindustrialization-financialization nexus in real estate built on the dismantled pre-1990 socialist industrial plants. The chapters describe the advancement of real estate investments across second and third-tier cities, displaying uneven development and subordinate financialization at the intersection of local and global processes and political and economic actors.It will be of interest to researchers and students of urban sociology, economic sociology, political economy, human geography, and political geography.

Stasik, Michael, Bus Station Hustle: Transport Work in Urban Ghana. (The International African Library) 236 pp. 2024:8 (Cambridge U. Pr., UK) <721-184>
ISBN 978-1-00-948662-0 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

Bus stations are among the most prominent sites of social and economic activity in Africa. Integral to transport, trade, and exchange over distance, they provide livelihoods for large numbers of people. Through a detailed ethnography of one of Ghana's busiest long-distance bus stations, Michael Stasik explores the dialectical relationship between the ways in which people make the station work and how the station shapes popular economic engagement and social life. Drawing on a dual understanding of 'hustle' as a distinct mode of economic activity and organisation, as well as a marker of complex and sometimes bewildering situations, Stasik challenges dominant views of transport work in urban Africa, especially those wedded to generic notions of 'informality'. Bus Station Hustle offers a nuanced anthropological perspective on the hands-on work in and the institutional workings of an infrastructural hub of mobility and exchange. This title is also available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.

Gardner, Andrew M., The Fragmentary City: Migration, Modernity, and Difference in the Urban Landscape of Doha, Qatar. 198 pp. 2024:5 (Cornell U. Pr., US) <720-693>
ISBN 978-1-5017-7498-0 hard ¥28,028.- (税込) US$ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-5017-7501-7 paper ¥6,025.- (税込) US$ 27.95

As Andrew M. Gardner explains in The Fragmentary City, in Qatar and elsewhere on the Arabian Peninsula, nearly nine out of every ten residents are foreign noncitizens. Many of these foreigners reside in the cities that have arisen in Qatar and neighboring states. The book provides an overview of the gulf migration system with its diverse migrant experiences. Gardner focuses on the ways that demography and global mobility have shaped the city of Doha and the urban characteristics of the Arabian Peninsula in general. Building on those migrant experiences, the book turns to the spatial politics of the modern Arabian city, exploring who is placed where in the city and how this social landscape came into historical existence. The author reflects on what we might learn from these cities and the societies that inhabit them. In The Fragmentary City, Andrew M. Gardner frames the contemporary cities of the Arabian Peninsula not as poor imitations of Western urban modernity, but instead as cities on the frontiers of a global, neoliberal, and increasingly urban future.

Guevenc, Muna, The City Is Ours: Spaces of Political Mobilization and Imaginaries of Nationhood in Turkey. 264 pp. 2024:8 (Cornell U. Pr., US) <720-694>
ISBN 978-1-5017-7435-5 hard ¥28,028.- (税込) US$ 130.00
ISBN 978-1-5017-7637-3 paper ¥6,888.- (税込) US$ 31.95

The City is Ours accounts how urban politics mediated the rise of Kurdish nationhood and mobilization in Diyarbakir, Turkey. Muna Guevenc elucidates how urban and architectural forms are not merely the backdrop of the cityscape where political struggles unfold; they constitute the very essence of these conflicts. Guevenc posits that urban spaces offer "wiggle room", turning oppression into chances for dissent and resilience and offering opportunities for vulnerable minority groups to create sociopolitical blocs and mobilizations. Guevenc takes readers from municipal halls to the streets and illustrates how, in the early 2000s, pro-Kurdish parties harnessed urban planning to resist coercion and foster Kurdish mobilization in Turkey. Guevenc challenges readers to rethink urban neoliberalism, new forms of nationalisms and mobilizations, and the ways they shape cities and politics. The City is Ours is a profound awakening, an invitation to all architects and urban planners, urging them to rise above the confines of their blueprints and embrace the vast tapestry of the politics of space.

Salata, Stefano, Urban Resilience: Lessons on Urban Environmental Planning from Turkey. (Emerald Points) 116 pp. 2024:3 (Emerald, UK) <720-700>
ISBN 978-1-83549-617-6 hard ¥12,936.- (税込) US$ 60.00

Advocating for the reintroduction of natural areas and biodiverse green spaces within our cities, Urban Resilience stems from the two years' experience living and teaching ecological planning in Turkey. What is resilience? What does it mean practically to design resilient cities? Demonstrating that the expansion of the ecological footprint of urban areas is no longer sustainable, Stefano Salata underscores that authentic resilience in urban planning necessitates embracing the reduction and de-sealing of urban surfaces, which he advocates for as the sole viable means of confronting the challenges posed by climate change. Providing a fresh methodological outlook on urban adaptation, Salata introduces a novel approach to understanding resilience, streamlining the key components of knowledge that urban planners need to acquire in order to effectively address the challenges posed by climate change. Supplemented with short personal reflections on Turkish space and society, this study explores the societal significance of embracing a new cultural paradigm characterized by reduced consumerism. Taking the Turkish case as a pioneering testing ground, Salata substantiates the potential of resilient approaches for urban transformation, affording us the opportunity to evaluate the efficacy of various solutions across the globe.

Haeusler, Eric / Haeusler, Juergen, How Cities Become Brands: Developing City Brands Purposefully and Thoughtfully. 228 pp. 2024:4 (Springer, GW) <720-767>
ISBN 978-3-658-43775-6 paper ¥15,226.- (税込) EUR 64.99

This book explores how the fragile and lengthy process of developing a city brand can be carefully managed. Necessary background information is explained, numerous experiences are reported, and targeted city branding is inspired in a variety of ways.The dream of every brand maker: to develop a city into a strong city brand - perhaps even a myth. The creation of myths remains a curiosity. Is it targeted, are there relevant recipes for success, and can those responsible be identified? Above all: Can the process be replicated? How do brand makers deal with the complexity of the phenomena of cities and city brands? How do they give the arduous process of creating a city brand a reasonable chance of success? How do brand makers deal with the often biting criticism from outside and the nagging self-doubt?Successful cityscapes arise from the trials and tribulations of complex and sometimes random processes. In the course of global city competition, this evolutionary process is enriched with the achievements of the craft of branding. This is not a guarantee of success. Success depends on numerous prerequisites, which are discussed in detail. Finally, craft rules for good and at the same time sensitive city branding are mentioned.The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence.

ISBN 978-981-9995-94-3 hard ¥30,455.- (税込) EUR 129.99

This book analyzes the adoption of stakeholders' engagement in various fields and scales while providing the readers with an international outlook of the topic. In the contemporary processes of urban development, regeneration is becoming a relevant way to limit the occupation of new land and to enhance the existing spatial, social, and ecological dimensions of specific parts of the city. It generally entails the engagement of different groups of stakeholders and users at various levels-e.g., institutional and private-who carry on their own agendas while conveying a wide range of interests and values to safeguard. At the same time, despite indications of a significant increase in its implementation under various forms and in multiple contexts in the last twenty years, participatory mechanisms have not been without challenges and barriers due to several factors, including facilitators' poor negotiation and communication practices, and consequently misinterpretation of the values at stake made by the parties involved, or obstructionism and gridlocks carried on by the different stakeholders. The narrative of the collection is structured in four sections The contributions elaborate on innovative participatory patterns, how they are/might be entangled with the different stages of regeneration projects, in what measure they have contributed to the United Nations sustainability goals, and the potential matters emerging during the negotiation phases. In detail, the four sections are: 1. Public space regeneration 2. Ecological regeneration 3. Built heritage regeneration 4. Informal settlements regeneration. Finally, this book is a significant asset to urban policy makers, planners, practitioners, and researchers in the architecture and urban studies domain who aim at deepening public participation practices knowledge by comparing different experiences.

Dziewanski, Dariusz, Gang Entry and Exit in Cape Town: Getting Beyond The Streets in Africa's Deadliest City. 200 pp. 2024:3 (Emerald, UK) <720-457>
ISBN 978-1-83909-733-1 paper ¥10,346.- (税込) US$ 47.99 *

Joint Winner of the 2023 ASSAf Humanities Book Award in the Emerging Researcher Category Gang violence is a concern being debated by academics, politicians, and communities around the world. Yet effective solutions are still in short supply, partly because too little research concentrates on understanding how people can escape the trap of violent street culture. Responding to that need, this book provides a detailed qualitative account of what it is like to join and then disengage from gangs in Africa's deadliest city. Through the life histories of twenty-four former Capetonian gang members, alongside hundreds of hours of additional interviews and observation from five years of ethnographic research, Dariusz Dziewanski reimagines gangsterism in a way that pays heed to the overwhelming force of street culture, but also confirms the possibility of overcoming crime and violence amid disenfranchisement and disadvantage. Rather than simply reproducing the poverty-crime-violence narrative, this book demonstrates how gang members can - and have - transformed their lives, challenging the pessimistic conclusions commonly associated with gang entry; even gang scholars studying street culture usually portray the end point to gang life as either prison or a body bag. By presenting evidence about successful gang exit, Dziewanski showcases a practical starting point for changing how criminologists think about gangs and street culture - offering hope to those trying exit gang life, as well as those trying to help them do so.

Sheng, Edmund Li, A Tale of Three Cities: Urban Governance of Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore During COVID-19. (Sustainable Development Goals Series) 105 pp. 2024:2 (Springer, GW) <720-150>
ISBN 978-981-9991-33-4 hard ¥25,769.- (税込) EUR 109.99

The proposed book presents the cutting-edge research on the urban development of three cities: Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore. By comparing their responses to the COVID-19 pandemic from an international political economic perspective, this book examines the commonalities and differences in urban governance in these three widely recognized and well-developed Asian cities with outward-oriented economies through the lens of world-systems theory and related theories of historicism. These cities are all generally considered to be under authoritarian regimes, but there are substantial differences in their social systems, rules of law and justice, and administrative structures. In the context of globalization, the cities are competing on a more even playing field. In addition, city governments worldwide are increasingly pursuing growth, land markets, urban regeneration, and large-scale public projects. With the advent of globalization, urban development is gradually changing from the past crude model of spatial expansion and land finance to a more refined model of socioeconomic development driven by industrial upgrading and enhanced consumption. However, cities' political and economic contexts and governance systems vary greatly. Unsurprisingly, given their differences, the three cities of Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Singapore demonstrated varied responses to the COVID-19 pandemic. This book discusses the efforts of these governments to address and reduce the spread of COVID-19 as well as how national responses to the pandemic outbreak were influenced by global dynamics, geopolitics, and each nation's particular historical context.

ISBN 978-1-5261-5629-7 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

By tracing the way evictions in a small community of around 600 families made news headlines all over the world, this book explores how activists in Rio protested against evictions at the Rio 2016 Olympics. They constructed the favela as safe, welcoming and homely, directly contesting the myth of marginality - the notion of favelas as havens of crime and poverty which is used to justify slum clearance. In doing so they were showcasing how a different kind of informal community rooted in security and belonging is possible, through a range of social events and other actions. Based on 14 months of fieldwork in Brazil, this book explores how this vision was constructed through collective action, transmitted around the world through both social and traditional media and how it lives on in the Evictions Museum that was created through the process.

Child, Phil, The Labour Party, Housing and Urban Transformation: In Place of Squalor. 224 pp. 2024:6 (Bloomsbury Academic, UK) <719-756>
ISBN 978-1-350-42343-5 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

The Labour Party, Housing and Urban Transformation explores how the urban transformation of Britain between 1945 and 1970 was understood politically by the Labour Party. Placing the Labour Party at the centre of the discussion, the book covers the most extensive period of state-led urban change in British history, from the end of the Second World War to the decline of high modernism in the late 1960s. Taking a particular focus on housing to explore the implementation of modernist ideas to drive a far-ranging process of urban transformation in Britain, it challenges conventional understandings of Labour's urban legacy and puts political ideas at the heart of twentieth-century change. Utilising a breadth and range of material, including two distinct sets of archival sources, published secondary material, national legislation and Housing Acts, and various case studies, Child moves seamlessly between the national picture and its local impacts. It also draws from sources which had a crucial influence on political thinking throughout the mid-twentieth century to understand how urban transformation represented for Labour a political vision of the future. A timely contribution both to urban history and to the history of post-war Britain, it challenges existing interpretations of modernism, connects urban change to the political ideas that drove it, and allows us to comprehend the state of urban Britain today.

ISBN 978-1-5261-7121-4 hard ¥23,655.- (税込) GB£ 85.00

The edges of cities are increasingly understood as places of dynamism and change, but there is little research on African urban peripheries, the nature of building, growth, investment and decline that is shaping them and how these are lived. This co-authored monograph draws on findings from an extensive comparative study on Ethiopia and South Africa, in conversation with a related study on Ghana. It examines African urban peripheries through a dual focus on the experiences of living in these changing contexts, alongside the logics driving their transformation. Through its conceptualisation and application of five 'logics of periphery', it offers unique, contextually-informed insights into the generic processes shaping urban peripheries, and the variable ways in which these are playing out in contemporary Africa for those living the peripheries.

This book brings together an international group of artists and writers to respond to the question of how our new world orders force us to reconsider urban walking and urban spaces in ways which extend into the digital sphere of online dialogue and screen sharing. In their reflections on walking cities in lockdown, the artists and writers contributing to this book share a number of complementary themes. Key to this is the question of how we walk in post-pandemic cities and how such walking might motivate or be motivated by transgressive, atomised or collective thoughts, affects, relations and experiences. Here we see how navigating cities in lockdown requires us to re-territorialise, improvise, create and de- or re-politize. There is, for example, a clear distinction between the severe lockdown measures that were introduced in Cape Town and the liberal appeal to good citizenship that northern hemisphere cities such as Stockholm chose to rely on. These measures impact on the way we experience urban walking and, in each case, lead to deeper reflections about the heightened presence of ideological structures embedded within the urban.

The fateful year 2020 brought dramatic challenges to American cities. The COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest caused by the killing of George Floyd led to a cascade of negative media stories about cities, often politically motivated. It seemed possible that the economic and demographic gains cities had achieved over the last few decades could be lost. In fact, there has been measurable population loss in larger cities caused by changing work/life patterns and changing public perceptions about the costs and benefits of urban living. Faced with these challenges, advocates for cities must make a vigorous case for cities and show how they aren't the cause of America's social, environmental, economic, and public health problems but, in fact, are the places where the solutions to those problems will be found. The 38 chapters in The Case for Cities draw on the expertise of contributors from the academic, professional, and civic sectors to explore the creative tension between the two great values on which the vigor of cities depends--that they should be "Cities of Choice" (places where people who have choice want to live) and "Cities of Justice" (places that welcome and support people with limited choices). The book's underlying perspective is that these two values are symbiotic and that promoting both is what leads to viable, sustainable urban resurgence. This book will be of keen interest to students and practitioners in urban planning, urban design, real estate, architecture, and landscape architecture and to urban advocates and civic leaders.

O'Neill, Bruce, Underground: Dreams and Degradations in Bucharest. (The City in the Twenty-First Century) 272 pp. 2024:5 (U. Pennsylvania Pr., US) <719-1042>
ISBN 978-1-5128-2582-4 hard ¥25,872.- (税込) US$ 120.00
ISBN 978-1-5128-2583-1 paper ¥6,457.- (税込) US$ 29.95

This book gets to the bottom of the twenty-first-century city, literally. Underground moves beneath Romania's capital, Bucharest, to examine how the demands of global accumulation have extended urban life not just upward into higher skylines, and outward to ever more distant peripheries, but also downward beneath city sidewalks. Underground details how developers and municipal officials have invested tremendous sums of money to gentrify and expand Bucharest's constellation of subterranean Metro stations and pedestrian pathways, basements and cellars, bunkers and crypts to provide upwardly mobile residents with space to live, work, and play in an overcrowded and increasingly unaffordable city center. In this sense, the repurposed underground facilitates dreams of middle-class ascendancy. This sense of optimism, the book shows, invariably gives way to ambivalence as the middle classes confront the indignities of being incorporated into the city from below. Bruce O'Neill argues that these loosely coordinated efforts have not only introduced novel forms of social fragmentation but also a new aesthetics of inequality that are fundamentally shaping where and how the middle classes fit in the city. Pushing urban studies beyond a cartographic perspective-with its horizontal focus upon centers and peripheries, walls and gates-O'Neill brings into focus the vertical dynamics of gentrification that place some "on the bottom" and others "on top" of the city. As cities around the world extend further downward in the name of development and sustainability, Underground makes clear that scholars and practitioners of the twenty-first-century city will need to become ever more attuned to the cultural politics of urban verticality, asking not just who is included in the city and who has been pressed outside of it, but also who is on top and who is placed on the bottom.
