9780415556651: The City Reader (Routledge Urban Reader Series)
Review:

"LeGates and Stout have crafted an introductory text aimed at “students who will encounter many of the writers and writings for the first time” (page 3). They introduce the field in a prologue entitled “How to Study Cities” that offers guidance on where to find courses on cities within universities, on the differing views students will encounter across disciplines, on the utility of theory versus applied research and practical knowledge, on the varied methods used to study cities, and on the field’s key organizations and journals. The authors guide the reader through the volume by offering introductory essays for each major section and short introductions to each selection. The section introductions raise larger questions students need to bear in mind, and also link current discussions to historical issues. Together these introductions act as a sort of connective tissue for the volume as a whole, pointing out recurrent themes and helping us to see current problems in historical context." - Elizabeth J. Mueller, University of Texas at Austin

From the Publisher:

The fifth edition of the highly successful City Reader juxtaposes the best classic and contemporary writings on the city. It contains fifty-seven selections including seventeen new contributions by experts including Elijah Anderson, Robert Bruegmann, Michael Dear, Jan Gehl, Harvey Molotch, Clarence Perry, Daphne Spain, Nigel Taylor, Samuel Bass Warner, and others – some of which have been newly written exclusively for The City Reader. Classic writings from Ebenezer Howard, Ernest W. Burgess, LeCorbusier, Lewis Mumford, Jane Jacobs and Louis Wirth, meet the best contemporary writings of Sir Peter Hall, Manuel Castells, David Harvey, Kenneth Jackson.

This edition of  The City Reader has been extensively updated and expanded to reflect the latest thinking in each of the disciplinary areas included and in topical areas such as sustainable urban development, climate change, globalization, and the impact of technology on cities. The plate sections have been extensively revised and expanded and a new plate section on global cities has been added.

The anthology features general and section introductions and introductions to the selected articles. New to the fifth edition is a bibliography listing over 100 of the top books for those studying Cities.
