移民、移動性、クリエイティブ・クラス
Hughes, Ellen / Webber, Don J. / Parry, Glenn, Migration, Mobility and the Creative Class. (New Horizons in Regional Science) 256 pp. 2024:3 (E. Elgar, UK) <716-386>
ISBN 978-1-80220-861-0 hard ¥23,842.- (税込) GB£ 85.00 *

Migration, Mobility and the Creative Class challenges contemporary conceptions of the mobility of the creative worker. Exploring the differences between a range of historical, political, and social contexts, this forward-thinking book contests the validity and logic of policymakers' strategies to attract the creative class, and emphasises the need for a reassessment of the plans employed for local and regional development.Drawing on detailed biographical life-course information obtained through in-depth interviews with creative workers, this book refutes established ideas that creative workers are a unique, autonomous and highly mobile group. Documenting empirical findings, it highlights how the migration and occupation patterns of creative workers are intimately connected with their early family experiences and to their social class. Ultimately, this innovative book recommends that policy should redirect its focus away from migration and towards creating places with good schools, affordable housing, sustainable jobs and strong connections across communities.Pairing in-depth case studies with established theoretical grounding, this book will be a fascinating read for academics, researchers and students specialising in economic geography, regional economics, migration and human geography. Its unique insights and practical policy recommendations will also be of benefit to those working in town planning, regional policy development and the creative industries.

Cheshmehzangi, Ali / Sedrez, M. / Zhao, Hang et al. (eds.), Resilience vs Pandemics: Innovations in Cities and Neighbourhoods. (Urban Sustainability) 206 pp. 2023:12 (Springer, GW) <716-418>
ISBN 978-981-9979-95-0 hard ¥30,884.- (税込) EUR 129.99

The COVID-19 pandemic and other highly transmissible diseases outbreaks have given a new significance to the concept of "resilience", placing it in the spotlight of built environment-related studies. New directions have emerged from expanding on adaptive planning, urban layouts, urban morphologies, spatial planning, healthy cities, etc. To enhance resilience in the post-pandemic era, various theories, practices, and hypotheses are being formulated by scholars around the world.For this book project, we invite chapter proposals that provide forefront discoveries about the built environment resilience during and after the ongoing pandemic. Historical perspectives of resilience and other highly transmissible diseases are also relevant to understanding the COVID-19 issues. The authors are encouraged to elaborate on critical exploratory, innovative, and cutting-edge research approaches, highlighting the effects of COVID-19 and other highly transmissible diseases in the design, planning, and perception of the built environment. We aim to gather scientific experiences, reviews, analyses, discussions, recommendations, and solutions in the fields of urban planning, urban design, urban management, environmental science, architecture, etc.The book aims to document resilience-related innovations and new perspectives for the built environment, how people's interactions adapt to new realities, and which mechanisms, tools, and strategies are required for such transformations in the following two scales of the built environments:(1) City/district; research on planning, commuting and mobility, politics, urban configurations, regulations, transmission and prevention, models, top-down processes, innovation processes, etc.(2) Community/neighborhood; research on collaboration, transmission and prevention, isolation and quarantine, social aspects, accessibility to services, technologies, education, policies, and innovative solutions.The book covers a wide range of studies, including physical and non-physical studies, which may refer to the city infrastructure, green/blue spaces, housing, policy-making, health services, social and economic issues, etc. The findings and results contribute to the decision-making of governments, organizations, and institutions, as well as inspire scholars and future research for developing resilience in the post-pandemic era.

Sparks, Tony, Tent City, Seattle: Refusing Homelessness and Making a Home. 200 pp. 2024:6 (U. Washington Pr., US) <716-442>
ISBN 978-0-295-75260-0 hard ¥23,215.- (税込) US$ 105.00 *
ISBN 978-0-295-75261-7 paper ¥6,633.- (税込) US$ 30.00 *

Transforms our understanding of being unhoused in the United StatesTent City 3 provides Seattle's unhoused people with a place to create and sustain not just shelter but a home. In 2000 it became one of the first organized, peer-operated tent encampments in the city, a type of community that has become more common throughout the West Coast and the United States in the intervening years. Based on groundbreaking participatory research and interviews, this book explores the lives of Tent City 3's residents and their efforts to reclaim dignity, freedom, and the deep human connection to one's own space.Tent City 3 upends stereotypes of homelessness by being a self-managed, self-governing, and largely self-supporting community of informal housing. Residents enact ongoing and relational homemaking practices that challenge widely accepted notions of private and public, self and other, and home and homeless. Tony Sparks reveals how small tasks undertaken in Tent City 3 contribute to a larger process of homemaking through practices of care, communing, and collectivity. He also shows how the encampment's residents refuse the normative boundaries of private property to create and sustain a sense of home and resist the ongoing settler colonialism that justifies their exclusion. Brimming with insightful analysis and rich storytelling, Tent City, Seattle dispels myths about homelessness while placing the issue within the arc of American history.

An examination of planning, place, and the politics of repair in post-genocide Rwanda.Master Plans and Minor Acts examines a "material politics of repair" in post-genocide Rwanda, where in a country saturated with deep historical memory, spatial master planning aims to drastically redesign urban spaces. How is the post-conflict city reconstituted through the work of such planning, and with what effects for material repair and social conciliation? Through extended ethnographic and qualitative research in Rwanda in the decades after the genocide of 1994, this book questions how repair after conflict is realized amidst large-scale urban transformation. Bridging African studies, urban studies, and human geography in its scope, this work ties Rwanda's transformation to contexts of urban change in other post-conflict spaces, bringing to the fore critical questions about the ethics of planning in such complex geographies.

Fox, Tom, Creating the Hudson River Park: Environmental and Community Activism, Politics, and Greed. 304 pp. 2024:4 (Rutgers U. Pr., US) <716-1493>
ISBN 978-1-9788-1401-1 hard ¥6,178.- (税込) US$ 27.95 *

The 4-mile-long, 550-acre Hudson River Park is nearing completion and is the largest park built in Manhattan since Central Park opened more than 150 years ago. It has transformed a derelict waterfront, protected the Hudson River estuary, preserved commercial maritime activities, created new recreational opportunities for millions of New Yorkers, enhanced tourism, stimulated redevelopment in adjacent neighborhoods, and set a precedent for waterfront redevelopment. The Park attracts seventeen million visitors annually. Creating the Hudson River Park is a first-person story of how this park came to be. Working together over three decades, community groups, civic and environmental organizations, labor, the real estate and business community, government agencies, and elected officials won a historic victory for environmental preservation, the use and enjoyment of the Hudson River, and urban redevelopment. However, the park is also the embodiment of a troubling trend toward the commercialization of America's public parks. After the defeat of the $2.4 billion Westway plan to fill 234 acres of the Hudson in 1985, the stage was set for the revitalization of Manhattan's West Side waterfront. Between 1986 and 1998 the process focused on the basics like designing an appropriate roadway, removing noncompliant municipal and commercial activities from the waterfront, implementing temporary improvements, developing the Park's first revenue-producing commercial area at Chelsea Piers, completing the public planning and environmental review processes, and negotiating the 1998 Hudson River Park Act that officially created the Park. From 1999 to 2009 planning and construction were funded with public money and focused on creating active and passive recreation opportunities on the Tribeca, Greenwich Village, Chelsea, and Hell's Kitchen waterfronts. However, initial recommendations to secure long term financial support for the Park from the increase in adjacent real estate values that resulted from the Park's creation were ignored. City and state politicians had other priorities and public funding for the Park dwindled. The recent phase of the project, from 2010 to 2021, focused on "development" both in and adjacent to the Park. Changes in leadership, and new challenges provide an opportunity to return to a transparent public planning process and complete the redevelopment of the waterfront for the remainder of the 21st-century. Fox's first-person perspective helps to document the history of the Hudson River Park, recognizes those who made it happen and those who made it difficult, and provides lessons that may help private citizens and public servants expand and protect the public parks and natural systems that are so critical to urban well-being.

Gordon, Greg (ed.), Rewilding the Urban Frontier: River Conservation in the Anthropocene. 342 pp. 2024:8 (U. Nebraska Pr., US) <716-1495>
ISBN 978-1-4962-3061-4 hard ¥14,371.- (税込) US$ 65.00

More so than other ecosystems, urban rivers typify our evolving relationship with nature. Once a necessity for the development of civilization, by the twentieth century America's rivers became neglected and abused, channelized, dammed, and filled with sewage and toxic waste. While acknowledging the profound impact our species has had on the natural world, and rivers in particular, Rewilding the Urban Frontier argues that the Anthropocene presents opportunities for rethinking our relationship to the natural world and potentially healing the age-old rift between humans and nature. Although the Clean Water Act of 1972 spurred a cleanup of the nation's waterways, explosive urban growth has since fragmented the wildlife corridors and ecosystems along our rivers. The contributors to this volume contend that if done right, rewilding urban rivers can help avoid further loss of biodiversity and simultaneously address environmental and social inequities.

Hamman, Philippe (ed.), Sustainable Urban Mobilities: French Fieldworks in European Perspective. (EcoPolis 40) 258 pp. 2023:11 (P. Lang, SZ) <716-1498>
ISBN 978-2-87574-904-8 paper ¥13,613.- (税込) SFR 56.00

Mobilities are an essential issue in contemporary societies, which have recently been reexamined as a result of calls for ecological transition, on the one hand, and the impact of the global Covid 19 pandemic, on the other. The original contribution of this book is that it starts from the polysemic meaning of mobility, paying attention to different scales of perception and action, the lived spaces in which mobility occurs, and the “alternative” character of so-called sustainable mobilities and the actors who display or engage in such practices. The concept of mobilities is thus considered in relation to urban spaces and sustainability, based on the analysis of French case studies from a European perspective and using multidisciplinary social sciences approaches.

Liu, Yanan, Built Environment and Walking & Cycling Around Metro Stations. (Urban Sustainability) 127 pp. 2023:11 (Springer, GW) <716-1506>
ISBN 978-981-9977-22-2 hard ¥26,132.- (税込) EUR 109.99

This book explores the relationship between pedestrians/cyclists' mode and route choice to/from metro/railway stations and the micro-level (street-scale) built environment in a second-tier city in China. More specifically, it investigates how the street-scale built environment influences pedestrians/cyclists' mode choice and route choice behavior and examines user preferences for the micro-level built environment around metro stations. The focus on a second-tier city is motivated primarily to expand the set of Chinese cities where the effects of the built environment on pedestrian/cyclist mode and route choice have been studied. Results demonstrate the effects of the street-scale built environment on pedestrian flows. The effects are higher for the main road, which is directly connected with the metro station. The findings of this book are expected to support the design of preferred walking/biking built environments around a metro station. This book appeals to urbanists, planners, engineers, policy makers, and those interested in a wide-ranging overview of slow/green transportation and built environment promotion. These methods not only help to understand the quantitative relationship between built environment design and travel behavior but also support the evaluation and assessment of built environment design in urban planning projects. It reduces the gap in our understanding of the quantitative relationship between the micro-level built environment and pedestrians/cyclists' transportation mode and route choice around the metro station. Both stated choice data and revealed choice data were used. An extended set of micro-level built environment attributes was developed. Besides the widely studied transportation-related factors, street-level built environment factors were studied using quantitative methods.

ISBN 978-1-4773-2971-9 paper ¥8,831.- (税込) US$ 39.95

An in-depth look at the diverging paths of Vietnamese American communities, or "Little Saigons," in America's built environment. In the final days before the fall of Saigon in 1975, 125,000 Vietnamese who were evacuated or who made their own way out of the country resettled in the United States. Finding themselves in unfamiliar places yet still connected in exile, these refugees began building their own communities as memorials to a lost homeland. Known both officially and unofficially as Little Saigons, these built landscapes offer space for everyday activities as well as the staging of cultural heritage and political events. Building Little Saigon examines nearly fifty years of city building by Vietnamese Americans-who number over 2.2 million today. Author Erica Allen-Kim highlights architecture and planning ideas adapted by the Vietnamese communities who, in turn, have influenced planning policies and mainstream practices. Allen-Kim traveled to ten Little Saigons in the United States to visit archives, buildings, and public art and to converse with developers, community planners, artists, business owners, and Vietnam veterans. By examining everyday buildings-who made them and what they mean for those who know them-Building Little Saigon shows us the complexities of migration unfolding across lifetimes and generations.

Sampson, Robert J., Great American City: Chicago and the Enduring Neighborhood Effect. 2nd ed. 560 pp. 2024:4 (U. Chicago Pr., US) <716-1541>
ISBN 978-0-226-83400-9 paper ¥5,858.- (税込) US$ 26.50 *

Great American City demonstrates the powerfully enduring impact of place. Based on one of the most ambitious studies in the history of social science, Robert J. Sampson's Great American City presents the fruits of over a decade's research to support an argument that we all feel and experience every day: life is decisively shaped by your neighborhood. Engaging with the streets and neighborhoods of Chicago, Sampson, in this new edition, reflects on local and national changes that have transpired since his book's initial publication, including a surge in gun violence and novel forms of segregation despite an increase in diversity. New research, much of it a continuation of the influential discoveries in Great American City, has followed, and here, Sampson reflects on its meaning and future directions. Sampson invites readers to see the status of the research initiative that serves as the foundation of the first edition-the Project on Human Development in Chicago Neighborhoods (PHDCN)-and outlines the various ways other scholars have continued his work. Both accessible and incisively thorough, Great American City is a must-read for anyone interested in cutting-edge urban sociology and the study of crime.

Steffes, Tracy L., Structuring Inequality: How Schooling, Housing, and Tax Policies Shaped Metropolitan Development and Education. 376 pp. 2024:4 (U. Chicago Pr., US) <716-1543>

ISBN 978-0-226-83226-5 paper ¥7,185.- (税込) US$ 32.50 *

How inequality was forged, fought over, and forgotten through public policy in metropolitan Chicago. As in many American metropolitan areas, inequality in Chicagoland is visible in its neighborhoods. These inequalities are not inevitable, however. They have been constructed and deepened by public policies around housing, schooling, taxation, and local governance, including hidden state government policies. In Structuring Inequality, historian Tracy L. Steffes shows how metropolitan inequality in Chicagoland was structured, contested, and naturalized over time even as reformers tried to change it through school desegregation, affordable housing, and property tax reform. While these efforts had modest successes in the city and the suburbs, reformers faced significant resistance and counter-mobilization from affluent suburbanites, real estate developers, and other defenders of the status quo who defended inequality and reshaped the policy conversation about it. Grounded in comprehensive archival research and policy analysis, Structuring Inequality examines the history of Chicagoland's established systems of inequality and provides perspective on the inequality we live with today.

ISBN 978-1-80220-322-6 hard ¥26,647.- (税込) GB£ 95.00

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.This Research Agenda explores the future of spatial analysis, and how the field informs and challenges the policy landscape. A wide range of contributors from different intellectual communities address the problem of causality in geographic analysis, arguing that diversity is crucial for the future success of the discipline.Chapters define and explore specific concepts and practices within the field, for instance data science and geosimulation, providing perspectives on the current state of the art of these areas within geography, and how they will shift in the future. In the first section, contributors cover the fundamentals of the topic, as well as various ways to handle the 'spatial variable', including the concept of space, the scale of spatial patterns and what those patterns reveal. The book then analyses schools of practice, including geographical data science, causality, generative modelling and machine learning.A Research Agenda for Spatial Analysis will prove an invaluable resource for spatial analysts and geographic information scientists interested in learning about the direction of future developments in the field. Additionally, scholars and students of human and urban geography and geographic research methods will benefit from this crucial overview of the topic.

Thouny, Christophe, The Urban Planetary and Tokyo Modernity: Dwelling in Passing. (New Studies in Modern Japan) 282 pp. 2023:12 (Lexington Books, US) <716-1326>
ISBN 978-1-66692-930-0 hard ¥23,215.- (税込) US$ 105.00 *

The Urban Planetary and Tokyo Modernity: Dwelling in Passing analyzes everyday experiences in Tokyo during the 1910s and 1920s, showing how urban literature and urban ethnography both tried to come to terms with an emerging planetary situation defined by both ongoing movement and an intensification of local experiences. This book argues that modern urban experiences are not primarily a question of alienation, consumerism or national life but first one of dwelling, and in particular of figuring "a dwelling in passing". Looking at the work of the Japanese urban ethnographer Kon Wajiro in relation to early 20th century literary mappings of Tokyo in Japanese literature such as Mori Ogai's 1912 novel Youth to Tayama Katai's 1916 The Tokyo Near-Suburb, Christophe Thouny argues for the need to reconsider these texts in terms of a speculative genealogy of local answers to an insistent planetary situation.

Anjaria, Jonathan Shapiro, Mumbai on Two Wheels: Cycling, Urban Space, and Sustainable Mobility. (Global South Asia) 240 pp. 2024:6 (U. Washington Pr., US) <716-1370>
ISBN 978-0-295-75270-9 hard ¥23,215.- (税込) US$ 105.00
ISBN 978-0-295-75269-3 paper ¥7,075.- (税込) US$ 32.00

Mumbai is not commonly seen as a bike-friendly city because of its dense traffic and the absence of bicycle lanes. Yet the city supports rapidly expanding and eclectic bicycle communities. Exploring how people bike and what biking means in the city, Jonathan Shapiro Anjaria challenges assumptions that underlie sustainable transportation planning.Arguing that planning professionals and advocates need to pay closer attention to ordinary people who cycle for transportation or for work, or who choose to cycle for recreation, Mumbai on Two Wheels offers an alternative to the thinking that dominates mainstream sustainable transportation discussions. The book's insights come from bicycle activists, commuters, food delivery workers, event organizers, planners, technicians, shop owners, and architects. Through ethnographic vignettes and descriptions of diverse biking experiences, it shows how pedaling through the city produces a way of seeing and understanding infrastructure. Readers will come away with a new perspective on what makes a city bicycle friendly and an awareness that lessons for a more equitable and sustainable urban future can be found in surprising places.

What urban food networks reveal about middle class livability in times of transformation In recent years, the concept of "livability" has captured the global imagination, influencing discussions about the implications of climate change on human life and inspiring rankings of "most livable cities" in popular publications. But what really makes for a livable life, and for whom?
