  1. Impressive list! I have a few city related books in various piles but (AFAIK) none of those listed.

    1. Ooh! Any titles you know off hand? I have quite a few titles planned for this area of interest coming up this year, including a re-read for "Happy City" to review it.

    2. The three I could lay my hands on easily where:

      The City by Max Weber (1958)
      Rebel Cities by David Harvey (2013)
      Ground Control - Fear & Happiness in the 21st Century City by Anna Minton (2009)

    3. The latter two remind me of a book I almost read -- "Tearing down the Streets: Adventures in Urban Anarchy", I think. A precis for Weber's book sounds interesting, if heady; strange I've never heard of it.
