This major new text provides a state of the art synthesis of the main strands of contemporary urban theory. It starts by reviewing the classic contributions to understanding the rise of the modern capitalist city and its evolution into the complex urban landscape of postmodern times. Its core chapters focus on key aspects of the emerging twenty-first century city relating urban socio-spatial processes to theoretical models.
