About the Author

Robin Hambleton is Professor of City Leadership in the Faculty of Environment and Technology at the University of the West of England, Bristol and Director of Urban Answers. An expert on urban planning, city management and local governance, he was the founding President of the European Urban Research Association (EURA) and Dean of the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA) at the University of Illinois at Chicago.


"An insightful, fresh take on city governance that blends academic understanding with 'real life' experience; and a timely warning of what might be lost in a 'placeless' world." --Graham Sansom, UTS Centre for Local Government, Australia. "Moving beyond dystopic views, Robin Hambleton offers a message of hope for cities in a globalised age. His global examples richly illustrate the importance of place-based inclusive leadership in creating successful and just cities." Ali Modarres, University of Washington Tacoma. "This book persuasively argues that place-based leadership can shape more inclusive, democratic, and sustainable cities. Drawing on detailed "Innovation Stories" from around the globe, Hambleton's work invites lesson-drawing from both practitioners and scholars." Susan Clarke, University of Colorado Boulder, USA. "In this wide ranging and challenging book, Robin Hambleton draws upon his considerable knowledge and experience to draw attention to the challenges, and the opportunities, facing cities in our current climate. He does so with academic insight and practical application, and this is an essential read for anyone concerned about the ways places are led." Julia Unwin CBE, Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
