Promotional Information

"Creating and maintaining diversity is perhaps the greatest challenge currently facing planners. Cities and the Politics of Difference explores in depth the theoretical and practical issues involved in planning for a mix of gender, ethnic, racial, and income groups in the contemporary metropolis. It is essential reading for planners and students of urban politics." -- Susan S. Fainstein, Department of Urban Planning and Design, Harvard University, and author of 'The Just City' "Cities and the Politics of Difference is a welcome addition to a burgeoning field in urbanism and urban planning. Balancing theoretical, reflective chapters with others that focus on skills development, this collection introduces readers to the complex nature of diversity, argues for the need to acknowledge and plan for it, and demonstrates how planners and policy-makers can address diversity in urban planning practice." -- Mark Seasons, School of Planning, University of Waterloo
