Planning on the Edge explores the reality behind the rhetoric of Vancouver’s reputation as a sustainable city and paves the way for developing Vancouver and its region into a place that is both economically sustainable and socially just.
Changing Neighbourhoods offers revealing insights into the way that Canadian cities have grown increasingly unequal and polarized since 1980, identifying the causal factors driving neighbourhood change and their troubling implications.
Digital Lives in the Global City asks how digital technologies are remaking urban life around the world, from migrant work in Singapore to digital debt in Toronto, illegal buildings in Mumbai, and targeted policing in New York.
