WALKING IN CITIES: QUOTIDIAN MOBILITY AS URBAN THEORY, METHOD AND PRACTICE. Ed. by Evrick Brown and Timothy Shortell. Temple University Press, Philadelphia, 2016. Urban Life, Landscape and Policy. 264 pp. with 4 ills. 23 x 15 cm. LC 2015-13668 ISBN 9781439912201 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 168752. Publisher's description: Walking connects the rhythms of urban life to the configuration of urban spaces. As the contributors and editors show in Walking in Cities, walking also reflects the systematic inequalities that order contemporary urban life. Walking has different meanings because it can be a way of temporarily "taking possession" of urban space, or it can make the relatively powerless more vulnerable to crime. The essays in Walking in Cities explore how walking intersects with sociological dimensions such as gender, race and ethnicity, social class, and power. Various chapters explore the flaneuse, or female urban drifter, in Tehran's shopping malls; Hispanic neighborhoods in New York, San Diego, and El Paso; and the intra-neighborhood and inter-class dynamics of gentrification in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The essays in Walking in Cities provide important lessons about urban life.
