- This text offers readers a considered theoretical introduction to the art of designing cities.
- Demonstrates that cities are replete with symbolic values, collective memory, association and conflict.
- Proposes a new theoretical understanding of urban design, based in political economy.
- Demonstrates different ways of conceptualising the city, whether through aesthetics or the prism of gender, for example.
- Written in an engaging and jargon-free style, but retains a sophisticated interpretative edge.
- Complements ‘Designing Cities’ by the same author (Blackwell, 2003).
