Most social geography undergraduate textbooks are structured around different social categories, splintering the discussion of gender, class, race and increasingly now sexuality and disability, into separate chapters. This has the effect, firstly, of making social relations rather than space (the raison d'etre of human geography) the focus of undergraduate books; secondly of ignoring the way that social relations are negotiated and contested in different space. Rather than reproducing this conventional social geography format the aim of this proposed text is to make space the focus of analysis. In doing so the intention is to make complex theoretical debates about space more accessible to students and encourage them to look at their own environments in new ways.

Unlike France and England, Spain has not been dominated by its capital, and the focus of its history shifts from city to city over the centuries, illuminating different features of the country's past. Toledo, Cordoba, Seville and Madrid have at various times managed to establish a political and cultural supremacy, Cadiz and Barcelona dominated the economy in the 18th and 19th centuries. Salanca housed one of the great universities of medieval Europe while Santiago became the second religious centre of Christendom. In CITIES OF SPAIN David Gilmour takes us on a journey from Visigothic kingdom and the Cordoban caliphate to the Madrid of today. The portrait of these cities both now and in the heyday reveal both their spirit and their significance, and allowed the reader an intimate view of one of Europe's most fascinating and intriguing countries.

Architecture Reborn is a detailed investigation into the adaptation and conversion of existing buildings as a distinctive type of architectural design. In color photographs and plans, here are 44 international schemes that demonstrate that reuse is a positive - even imperative - way to achieve a forward-looking architecture. Renzo Piano has transformed the legendary Fiat factory into a cultural and commercial complex; a former public school in Long Island City, NY has become P.S.1 Institute for Contemporary Art; and a 1930s factory in Detroit is now the HOPE Center for Advanced Technologies. Rather than preservation, or deference to old buildings, the message here is transformation: a physical rather than historicist approach to constructing new form from old fabric. For architects, students, and all proponents of creative reuse, this is an essential collection of case histories and an important reference in keeping up to date with this fast-moving and often controversial area of design.

A celebration of Australia's vibrant and innovative urban architecture, from minimalist to extravagant, from economically planned to lavishly spacious. Long esteemed for its magnificent beach and bush environments, Australia has become equally renowned for its city living. The country's urban lifestyle is catered to by a profusion of cultural venues, restaurants, bars, cafes, hotels, sports clubs, and boutiques, yet life in the twenty-first-century city remains reassuringly domestic. Today's cities are home to genuine communitiessingles and couples, families and extended families, professionals and retired people, all attracted to the convenience, the culture, and the aesthetic of urban living. The last five years have seen an unprecedented proliferation of exciting residential projects by a new generation of architects. Apartments and townhouses, industrial conversions, and extensions: Australia City Living showcases fifty recent projects in all the major cities of Australia. They include high-rise developments, where the cityscape provides an awe-inspiring backdrop to the daily domestic routine; bold contemporary townhouses, some of them adapted from Victorian period dwellings; and warehouses and factories converted to living spaces, often with traces of their original crumbling brickwork and plaster remaining alongside pristine new interiors. In areas that used to be sprawling suburbs but are increasingly part of the city's inner orbit, new villas ingeniously maximize the space and light available on ever-smaller plots. 390 color illustrations.
