The second edition of The City Reader brings together the very best writing on the city. Fifty-five generous selections are included: thirty from the first edition and twenty-five entirely new ones. Each piece is introduced with a brief intellectual biography and a review of the authors writings and related literature, and an explanation of how the piece fits into the broader context of urban history and practice, competing idiological perspectives on the city, and the major current debates concerning race and gender, global restructuring, sustainable urban development, the impact of technology and postmodernism.
