About the Author

Fran Tonkiss is a Lecturer in Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science.


?A wonderfully eclectic but focused book about social relations and spatial process in the US city.? British Journal of Sociology ?Fran Tonkiss has written an important book. She shows the ways in which classic social theory continues to haunt the understanding of modern urban life. In clear, direct prose she shows also the ways cities are changing, and so require new thinking. The urbanite as well as the urbanist will be provoked.? Richard Sennett, London School of Economics ?This is an exceptionally useful and inspiring book that will be used to instruct many of the urbanists of the future.? Nigel Thrift, University of Oxford
