City provides an accessible yet critical introduction to one of the key concepts in human geography. Always at the heart of discussions in social theory, the definition and specification of ‘:the city’: nonetheless remains illusive. In this volume, Phil Hubbard locates the concept of ‘:the city’: within current traditions of social thought, providing a basis for understanding its varying usages and meanings through a critical discussion of the contribution of key authors and thinkers.

Written in a lively and accessible style, the individual chapters of :City offer a thematic overview of four dominant ways of approaching cities:

  • as lived-in places
  • as imagined spaces
  • as networks of association
  • as technologies of flow.

Drawing on a diverse range of literatures and case studies, the book spells out the importance of a geographical perspective on the city, suggesting that it is only by bringing these different ways of mapping the city together that we can begin to make sense of cities.
