This second edition of "The City Reader" brings together writing on the city. 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 ideological perspectives on the city; and the major current debates concerning race and gender, global restructuring, sustainable urban development, and the impact of technology and postmodernism.
