One of the many important occassions marked by the new millenium is the fact that for the first time, a majority of the human inhabitants of the Earth will dwell in cities. This is a collection of 60 texts on the cultural aspects, frameworks and perceptions of cities, reflecting the concerns for diversity and difference, rather than conventional notions of universaility. The City Cultures Reader is organised into twelve sections drawing on material from cultural studies, architectural criticism and theory, cultural and human geography, urban design and critical theory. Topics covered include city form, city cultures in relation to politics and economics, every day life, memeory and identity, cultural representation, ecology, social justice, resistance, utopian and dystopian visions, and possible futures. This exciting collection of readings draws out the comparisons and contrasts by the juxtaposition of texts in each section, and adding a critical and informative dimension thorugh the general and section introductions.
