9780754634140: City of Quarters: Urban Villages in the Contemporary City

In cities throughout the world, there is an increasingly ubiquitous presence of distinct social and spatial areas - urban villages, cultural and ethnic quarters. These spaces are sites where capital and culture intertwine in new ways. City of Quarters brings together some of the most prominent authors writing about urban villages to provide the first systematic and multi-disciplinary overview of this high-profile urban phenomenon. They address key questions such as 'What is the role of urban villages and quarters in the contemporary city?' and 'What are the economic, political, socio-spatial and cultural practices and processes that surround these urban spaces?' Blending conceptual chapters with theoretically directed case studies from all over the world, this book includes issues such as local and regional development strategies, production, consumption, the creative industries, popular culture, identity, lifestyle, and tourism.

Review:

'An excellent and timely collection of essays. Mark Jayne and David Bell's collection contains work by leading scholars in a number of fields who reflect on urban forms of growing significance...A key text for anybody interested in the emergence of distinctive social and cultural spaces within cities.' Dr Tim Hall, University of Gloucestershire, UK 'This book is the first attempt to gather together some systematic reflections on the idea of cultural quarters, and as such it is extremely timely. The book should be essential reading for students, academics and policy makers interested in the different ways in which cultural quarters are transforming the contemporary city.' Dr Justin O'Connor, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK 'The chapters provide fascinating case study material for the larger concerns of the book as a whole...Bell and Jayne have put together a fine anthology of essays. It is an important contribution to urban studies.' European Journal of Communication
