This edited collection examines innovative urban redevelopment projects around Europe and North America which are at the forefront of new urbanism and which are termed New Downtowns. The book addresses major questions such as: What does a sustained urbanity for the 21st century look like? Does the imagination of a European city continue to inspire new urbanism within and beyond Europe? And can a future urbanity for the 21st century be planned at all? Reviewed by Karl Baker.
