The Rise of Cities: Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and other Cities

Dimitrios Roussopoulos, ed.


In the early 2000s human society entered a new urban epoch in which the majority of human beings live in cities. The Rise of Cities: Montréal, Toronto, Vancouver and Other Cities offers an intriguing response to this milestone. Taking the 150th anniversary of Canada in 2017 as an opportunity to respond to essential urban questions through the lens of Canada’s three major cities, the contributors present a stimulating analysis of how cities coalesce, develop, and thrive, and how they can be remade to better serve the lifeblood of all cities – their citizens. Also featuring essays on urban activism in Barcelona and Madrid, The Rise of Cities provides a rigorous and accessible introduction to the key questions of 21st century urbanism.

Featuring essays from Dimitrios Roussopoulos, Shawn Katz, Bill Freeman, Patrick J. Smith, and Ann Marie Utratel
