Urban Research Group Announces New Book Series

Our Urban Research Group Announces New Book Series on The Contemporary City and is issuing a Call for Book Proposals
The Urban Research Group in the Department of Public Policy here at CityU are collaborating with the Centre for Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam in the launch of an affiliated 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. The series 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.
Call for Proposals:
We are seeking book proposals 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.  Contact: Ray Forrest at or Richard Ronald at
