New book series launch: The Contemporary City
The Urban Research Group and the University of Amsterdam's Centre for Urban Studies are launching a new book series on The Contemporary City. The series aims to explore the various aspects of the contemporary urban experience from a strongly interdisciplinary and international perspective. The series will be published by Palgrave-Macmillan in early 2016. It will be edited jointly by Ray Forrest (CITYU) and Richard Ronald (AMSTERDAM). It will showcase urban research from the University of Amsterdam and from City University but is also open to outside authors. For this reason we are issuing a Call for Book Proposals. You can find more details in this leaflet.

We welcome contributions from across the social sciences but anticipate a core audience rooted in critical approaches in sociology, human geography, anthropology and political science. Economic issues are a key concern but our interest lies more with political economy and non-orthodox economics. New scholars are particularly welcome to contact the editors with ideas for books.
