For the first time in history, half of the worlds population is living in mega-cities. Never before have we confronted such a geography of the worlds people.
Analysing cities through spatial understanding, City Worlds explores how different worlds within the city are brought into close proximity. The authors outline new ways to address the ambiguities of cities: their promise and potential, their problems and threats.
'An excellent attampt to understand and articulate the urban world using examples from refreshingly different sources.' - Andrew Lovatt, Manchester Metropolitan University
