Publishers Description: Urban Geography introduces both 'traditional' and contemporary approaches and perspectives in urban geography to explore the activities in global cities, governments and institutions in forming and changing urban landscapes. Placing the European and North American city within a changing set of global economic and urban systems, the book examines the ways in which these systems impact on the lives and the geographies of cities. The rise of the 'post-industrial' entrepreneurial city, resistance of local cultures and political formations, and recent problems that have affected city areas, including homelessness and the edge-city phenomena, are explored. With the emergence of a new geography of world urbanisation, Urban Geography examines the new urban crisis and the challenges for urban governance at both central and local levels.
