: The effect of geography on people's lives has been a consistent preoccupation for not only town planners and architects, but also for artists, sociologist, philosophers and politicians. This volume collects together a wide range of essays on racism in Britain, wars over territory, urban spaces and technological change, new towns and the postmodern city. Reflecting the ideas and issues which have found themselves at the forefront of cultural theory and studies, this text addresses itself to the dilemmas and predicaments of the often bewildering experience of modern life. From ethnicity to architecture, from Rudyard Kipling to Milton Friedman, this collection casts light into every corner of the spaces people inhabit.
