The Handbook of Urban Segregation scrutinises key debates on spatial inequality in cities across the globe. It engages with multiple domains, including residential places, public spaces and the field of education. In addition, this comprehensive Handbook tackles crucial group dimensions across race, class and culture as well as age groups, the urban rich, and middle-class and gentrified households.
In a 'world tour' of urban contexts, the reader is guided through six continents confronting pressing segregation issues. Leading international scholars offer valuable insights across regional, ethnic, socioeconomic and welfare regime contexts. Three thematic parts explore key segregation questions worldwide, the multiple domains and dimensions of the topic, and the methods, approaches and debates surrounding its measurement. Through these lenses, this timely Handbook provides a key contribution to understanding what urban segregation is about, why it has developed, what its consequences are and how it is measured, conceptualised and framed.
Containing clear use of visual aids alongside textual analysis, this Handbook will be an engaging and accessible resource for students and scholars with an interest in urban and human geography, cities and planning, and the wider field of urban studies.
