Additional Book Details

The last two decades have been an exciting and richly productive period for debate and academic research on the city. The SAGE Handbook of New Urban Studies offers comprehensive coverage of this modern re-thinking of urban theory, both gathering together the best of what has been achieved so far, and signalling the way to future theoretical insights and empirically grounded research.



Featuring many of the top international names in the field, the handbook is divided into nine key sections:

SECTION 1: THE GLOBALIZED CITY
SECTION 2: URBAN ENTREPRENEURIALISM, BRANDING, GOVERNANCE
SECTION 3: MARGINALITY, RISK AND RESILIENCE
SECTION 4: SUBURBS AND SUBURBANIZATION: STRATIFICATION, SPRAWL, SUSTAINABILITY
SECTION 5: DISTINCTIVE AND VISIBLE CITIES
SECTION 6: CREATIVE CITIES
SECTION 7: URBANIZATION, URBANITY AND URBAN LIFESTYLES
SECTION 8: NEW DIRECTIONS IN URBAN THEORY
SECTION 9: URBAN FUTURES 

This is a central resource for researchers and students of Sociology, Cultural Geography and Urban Studies.
