Unruly Cities?: Order/Disorder

Front Cover
Chris Brook, Gerry Mooney, Steve Pile
Routledge, Feb 1, 2006 - Science - 368 pages
1 Review
The text argues that cities are open to many forms of order and disorder both from within the city and outside. They represent cities potentials as well as their problems. It challenges the assumption that cities are threatened by disorder from below and that they might be ruled by 'order' imposed from above.
