With more and more of the world’s population living in urban environments, the management of cities has posed increasing challenges to governments and policy makers. Wide ranging yet concise, The Short Guide to Urban Policy makes sense of the multiple ways that urban issues and problems have been defined and addressed in different places and at different times. From initiatives that focus on social tensions to those that focus on economic development, it provides critical discussions of the key concerns that have characterized urban policy around the globe. It is an invaluable introduction for anyone new to urban policy or who wishes to better understand the many ways we have addressed the problems of urban living.
