‘Urban Transformations: Centres, Peripheries and Systems’ – Edited by Daniel P. O’Donoghue, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK

Definitions of urban entities and urban typologies are changing constantly to reflect the growing physical extent of cities and their hinterlands. These include suburbs, sprawl, edge cities, gated communities, conurbations and networks of places and such transformations cause conflict between central and peripheral areas at a range of spatial scales. This book explores the role of cities, their influence and the transformations they have undertaken in the recent past.
