Reviews

"Formidable yet accessible, Unsettling Cities succeeds on almost every level. It stands complete in its own right, regardless of what power it draws from its integration with the two companion texts. the movement/stability frame of reference is compelling and sustained, with a cohesiveness not easily attained in edited books" Environment and Planning B 1999 Vol. 26

"Anyone interested in a fresh look at contemporary urban geography must read this work of academic and pedagogic excellence. I wish the texts available when I read urban geography for the first time over 20 years ago had been as exciting and enthusiastically as this one" Paul Bull, Dept Geog, birkbeck College for Urban Studies Vol 37, no.2

'Overall this text ought to become a standard teaching item and is a model example of how to display and convey complex ideas to students.' - Rob Imrie, Dept Geog, Royal Holloway University London for International Planning Studies Vol 6, No 1, 2001
