Book note published in Environment & Urbanization
"Early-career researchers authored the chapters in Overlooked Cities, which builds on decades of research on urban centres that have variously been labelled ‘small’, ‘intermediate’, ‘secondary’, ‘peripheral’ and ‘ordinary’. In this book’s view, overlooked cities aren’t necessarily tiny cities. Some of the 13 cities explored in this book have over a million inhabitants each; a couple are capitals. There is no simple checklist for determining an overlooked city."
Thanks to the wonderful editors of the journal Environment and Urbanization, who featured our book.
