Taylor & Francis, 2005 - Business & Economics - 564 pages
The "Encyclopedia of the City" complements Routledge's strong list of readers and textbooks in urban studies and the city. Focusing on the key topics encountered by undergraduates and scholars in urban studies and allied fields, the contributions of its major theoreticians and practitioners, and on other individuals, groups, and organizations which study the city or practice in a field that directly or indirectly affects the city, the "Encyclopedia" necessarily adopts an interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspective. A first-class work of reference that will be both an essential resource for independent study as well as a useful aid in teaching, this is a solid but also provocative starting point for wider exploration of the ctizenship; city; city beautiful movement; City of Ur; city typologies; civil rights movement; civil society; classicism; closed circuit television
