Urban life is changing rapidly and fears of social breakdown and disorder are widespread. Transforming Citiesreviews these changes, documents the social divisions they are generating and evaluates attempts to regenerate urban social relations around new policy initiatives and forms of governance.
Reviewing developments in major urban cities, the contributors offer explanations for the fundamental economic political and social processes which characterize contemporary urban living. Particular attention is given to analyzing emerging political regimes and institutional structures which promote material solutions and the promotion of partnership as the antidote to social breakdown.

Transforming Cities: New Spatial Divisions and Social Transformation

It is evident that in the mediaeval period a relatively stable urban form was shaped and preserved for a considerable period of time until the Industrial Age, both in Western mediaeval and Eastern Islamic examples.
From this period, cities witnessed a new type of development, different in size, scale and momentum. Large-scale transformation of historic cities under modernisation soon led to serious concerns about the preservation of historic cities, especially from the second half of the twentieth century.
This relies on the analysis of a representative group of cities from two Western and Eastern realms, England and Iran, and the comparative investigation of their old and new historic cores. The analysis shows that the fate of the historic core is strongly dependent on the way its spatial organisation is transformed.
