  Leave behind status-quo thinking about contemporary cities and leap into the knowledge, actions and ideas of sharp critical urbanists from across the globe. Critical Cities Vol 3 offers provocative and transformative perspectives from multiple urban contexts including São Paulo, Zagreb, Hong Kong, London, Bogota, and Nicosia.

On Critical Cities Vols 1 & 2:

" There is a dearth of critical commentaries examining the changes in cities wrought by neo-liberalism. At last a multi-disciplinary collection of writing that brings together some of the best." Anna Minton, author of 'Ground Control'

"This collection explicitly and honestly wears its politics on its sleeve, a necessary counterpoint to the political disavowal or equivocation of too many urban actors. The exhilaration in the book lies in the stories told and in their transformative potential." Professor Jeremy Till, author of 'Architecture Depends'

The books are edited by Deepa Naik and Trenton Oldfield, designed by Karolin Schnoor and copy-edited by Barbara Murray.
