The last two decades have been an exciting and richly productive period for debate and academic research on the city. The SAGE Handbook of New Urban Studies offers comprehensive coverage of this modern re-thinking of urban theory, both gathering together the best of what has been achieved so far, and signalling the way to future theoretical insights and empirically grounded research.

Featuring many of the top international names in the field, the handbook is divided into nine key sections:

SECTION 1: THE GLOBALIZED CITYSECTION 2: URBAN ENTREPRENEURIALISM, BRANDING, GOVERNANCESECTION 3: MARGINALITY, RISK AND RESILIENCESECTION 4: SUBURBS AND SUBURBANIZATION: STRATIFICATION, SPRAWL, SUSTAINABILITYSECTION 5: DISTINCTIVE AND VISIBLE CITIESSECTION 6: CREATIVE CITIESSECTION 7: URBANIZATION, URBANITY AND URBAN LIFESTYLESSECTION 8: NEW DIRECTIONS IN URBAN THEORYSECTION 9: URBAN FUTURES

This is a central resource for researchers and students of Sociology, Cultural Geography and Urban Studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Urban studies is currently in a state of high flux marked by many different and competing claims. This book is an extraordinarily successful and comprehensive attempt to map out the complex conceptual terrain of urban theory today and to clarify the multiple and conflicting terms of debate. -- Allen J. Scott
The Sage Handbook of New Urban Studies is an essential primer for all students of urban studies. In the fast-moving field of both city growth and change, as well as the theoretical interpretations of it, this comprehensive collection provides a lively survey and a vital 'health check'. -- Andy C. Pratt
This is a follow-up to the 2001 Handbook of Urban Studies, and shows the increasingly multidisciplinary nature of scholarship that falls under the urban studies label. The editors explain in the introduction that they deliberately avoided a linear approach to editing this collection. So the original papers collected here are about anything and everything related to urban studies, including different theories, topics, and of course places. The chapters in this handbook take readers through all of the current issues in thinking about the city. From this overview, the literature appears to be increasingly decentralized and increasingly interested in low and middle-income nations. -- Christine Ro
