About the Author

Alan Latham teaches in the Department of Geography at University College London. His research is focused on urban sociality, corporeal mobility and public space. Writing on topics ranging from urban cycling and recreational running, cultural economies and neighbourhood change, to the overseas experiences of transnational migrants, his work explores the materialities and practices that generate distinctive forms of urban life. He has published widely in edited collections and international journals including Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, Environment and Planning D, Cultural Geographies and Urban Studies. He is the co-author of Key Concepts in Urban Geography.


This extraordinary collage of sophisticated essays on key terms in urban geography both provides a conventional basis to and recasts innovatively a burgeoning field in the discipline.
-- Roger Keil
The city is an obvious but confounding object of geographical analysis; urban structure and life are shaped by an astounding array of social, economic, and political dynamics. This volume embraces these complexities of city form in a wide-ranging, readable, well-informed, and highly interdisciplinary analysis of key topics in urban studies. With its fresh approach, this book provides an accessible entry point for the newcomer to urban geography, yet also delivers creative insights for those with greater familiarity. -- Steven K. Herbert
