Lars Frers, Lars Meier
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2007 - Social Science - 190 pages
Urban places are always local entities, with their specific contestations and with their different, concrete encounters. In this book, the contributors do not simply encounter urban places, they are analyzing how encountering urban places evolves in places as diverse as Ankara, Cleveland, Frankfurt, New York and Vienna.
