Urban Research (UR) is a book series devoted to cities and their futures. Our goal is to get the word out about solutions that exceed the reach of "official" planning and design and to encourage vigorous and wide-ranging debate. We hope to become a key resource for people and organizations engaged in progressive urban research, design, and critical advocacy. We invite the collaboration of all who share our interest in creating sustainable, beautiful, and just cities around the world.
Michael Sorkin, Editor in Chief
