The rich diversity of the Muslim world is strikingly expressed through its myriad of cities. This reference volume presents abstracts of scholarship examining socio-cultural and cosmopolitan processes with aspects of material culture in contemporary and historic urban contexts. The abstracts, in English, Arabic and Turkish, examine cities as built (architecture and urban infrastructure) and lived (urban social life and culture) environments. The important subject of urban growth in Muslim majority countries over the past 50 years is dealt with in the abstracts of recent works which discuss issues of infrastructure and the environment, as well as migration from rural areas to cities. The topics related to cities and urban life which are discussed in these abstracts demonstrate that concerns are vary between Muslim majority countries, and from one decade to another.
