"City Worlds" presents both an overview and the core of the argument in the "Understanding Cities " series. The book draws on our spatial imaginations to prompt a distinctive understanding of cities. Analysing cities through spatial understanding, "City Worlds" explores how different worlds within the city are brought into close proximity. The authors outline new ways to address the ambiguities of cities: their promise and potential, their problems and threats.
