Cities by Design: The social life of urban form
Fran Tonkiss, Polity Books, December 2013
Who makes our cities, and what part do everyday users have in their design? This new book by Cities Programme director Professor Fran Tonkiss shows that city-making is a social process, and examines the close relationship between the social and physical shaping of urban environments.
'Tonkiss is among the most insightfully spatial of urban sociologists...' Professor Edward Soja, UCLA.
Fran Tonkiss is Professor of Sociology at LSE.
