    Impressive list! I have a few city related books in various piles but (AFAIK) none of those listed.

  2. Stephen says:

    Ooh! Any titles you know off hand? I have quite a few titles planned for this area of interest coming up this year, including a re-read for “Happy City” to review it.

  3. CyberKitten says:

    The three I could lay my hands on easily where:

    The City by Max Weber (1958)
    Rebel Cities by David Harvey (2013)
    Ground Control – Fear & Happiness in the 21st Century City by Anna Minton (2009)

  4. Stephen says:

    The latter two remind me of a book I almost read — “Tearing down the Streets: Adventures in Urban Anarchy”, I think. A precis for Weber's book sounds interesting, if heady; strange I've never heard of it.

  5. R.T. says:

    Wow! That is an impressive catalogue! I'm sure I'll find a few things to read among those you've listed. Thanks!

  6. Stephen says:

    Enjoy what you find. 😀 I'll be adding more to this as the year progresses.
