6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a wideranging analysis of social welfare reform in the region, examining in particular the politics involved in implementing difficult and controversial social policies that often pit the middle strata of society, represented by powerful stakeholders, against the poor."--Jacket
Immigration and integration in urban communities : renegotiating the city( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Immigration and Integration in Urban Communities shows how immigrants negotiate with longtime residents over economic, political, cultural, and linguistic boundaries. Drawing on anthropology, political science, sociology, and geography, and focusing on such diverse cities as Washington, D.C., Rome, Los Angeles, Johannesburg, Munich, and Dallas, the contributors to this volume challenge both policy makers and academic analysts to reframe their discussions of urban migration and to recognize the contemporary immigrant city as the dynamic, constantly shifting form of social organization it has become."--Jacket

Preparing for the urban future : global pressures and local forces( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More and more of the world's people live in urban areas, which share the same problems: unemployment, corroding infrastructure, deteriorating environment, a collapsing social compact, and weakening institutions. To ask why this is happening and what can be done, twenty-two leading social scientists and experienced public officials have pooled their experience and their research in preparation for the June 1996 United Nations conference on human settlement in Istanbul. Their collaborative effort is published in Preparing for the Urban Future: Global Pressures and Local Forces. The contributors find commonalities in the globalized economy in which all cities compete and in the mixes of squalor and splendor found in urban environments east and west, north and south. But common, too, in these accounts, are local, rather than national, solutions to urban challenges, which local community groups often view in purely local terms
Urban diversity : space, culture, and inclusive pluralism in cities worldwide( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As the world's urban populations grow, cities become spaces where increasingly diverse peoples negotiate such differences as language, citizenship, ethnicity and race, class and wealth, and gender. Using a comparative framework, Urban Diversity examines the multiple meanings of inclusion and exclusion in fast-changing urban contexts. The contributors identify specific areas of contestation, including public spaces and facilities, governmental structures, civil society institutions, cultural organizations, and cyberspace. The contributors also explore the socioeconomic and cultural mechanisms that can encourage inclusive pluralism in the world's cities, seeking approaches that view diversity as an asset rather than a threat. Exploring old and new public spaces, practices of marginalized urban dwellers, and actions of the state, the contributors to Urban Diversity assess the formation and reformation of processes of inclusion, whether through deliberate actions intended to rejuvenate democratic political institutions or the spontaneous reactions of city residents. -- From Inside Book Flap
