Summary

This book explores some of the possible urban worlds at the end of the 20th century in order to discern possible common strategies among communities in different cities. It assembles contributions by distinguished, well-known academics and some of today's most innovative urban-movement groups and projects. The book appeals not only to academics and activists, but to anyone interested in ruban development at the end of the 20th century. The book is the result of the 7th INURA conference "Possible Urban Worlds" held in Zurich in June 1997. It continues the debate about new concepts for a democratic and sustainable city, among people who have come together in the International Network for Urban Research and Action (INURA).
