This edition provides the first complete, modern version of John Norden's The Surveyor's Dialogue. Norden's text, a series of dialogues between a fictional surveyor and several interlocutors”including a tenant farmer, an aristocrat landowner, a manorial officer, and a socially mobile land buyer”is remarkable for its unique commentary on the agrarian roots of English capitalism. In his extensive introduction, Mark Netzloff situates the text in relation to a number of early modern contexts. He discusses the use of dialogue and other literary forms in proto-scientific writing and the role of print in the increasing professionalism of early surveyors. Netzloff also examines the impact of capital formation on agrarian and manorial class relations, discussing topics such as popular protest and revolt, cottagers and the rural poor, regionalism and urbanization, and the transformation of the natural environment through deforestation, enclosure, and the appropriation of commons. Alongside a thorough annotation of technical and historical terms, the edition provides a list of textual variants among early modern versions of the text. This critical edition of The Surveyor's Dialogue constitutes an important contribution to early modern scholarship, and it will be invaluable to scholars from a range of fields, including the history of science, economic and agrarian history, and literary and cultural studies.

Remembering, Forgetting and City Builders critically explores how urban spaces are designed, planned and experienced in relation to the politics of collective and personal memory construction. Bringing together case studies from North America, South Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East, the book analyzes how contested national, ethnic and cultural sentiments clash in planning and experiencing urban spaces. Going beyond the claim that such situations exist in many parts of the world because communities construct their 'past memories' within their current daily life and future aspirations, the book explores how the very acts of planning and urban design are rooted in the existing structures of hegemonic power. With contributors from the fields of architecture, geography, planning, anthropology and sociology, urban studies and cultural studies, the book provides a rich, interdisciplinary view into the conflicts over memory and belonging which are spatially expressed and mediated through the official planning apparatus.

In seinem erstmals 1934 erschienenen Buch London. The Unique City erzählt Steen Eiler Rasmussen die faszinierende Geschichte einer Weltstadt. Seine auf umfangreiche Recherchen zur Stadtgeschichte, zu den Lebensformen der Londoner sowie auf eigene langjährige Beobachtungen gestützte Analyse von Londons städtebaulicher und architektonischer Entwicklung macht sein Buch London. The Unique City zu einem Standardwerk. Auch heutigen Lesern gibt der Autor ein lehrreiches stadtgeschichtliches und urbanistisches Kompendium an die Hand. Die erfahrungsbasierte Idee, daß die Zukunft der Stadt von eigenverantwortlich handelnden, sich ihrer Kultur bewußten Bürgern entscheidend mitgeprägt werden kann, von Menschen, die sich für ihre Stadt einsetzen, sie mitgestalten und diese Aufgabe nicht dem Staat überlassen, hat rund 80 Jahre nach dem Jahr der Erstveröffentlichung nicht nur nicht an Aktualität verloren. Der internationale Stadtdiskurs, wie ihn etwa die einflußreichen Urban Age-Konferenzen geführt haben, revitalisiert diese Idee und demonstriert deren Perspektiven an zahlreichen Beispielen. Steen Eiler Rasmussen (1898-1990) war einer der letzten großen Architekten, die ihre Arbeit in einen weiten gesellschaftlichen Kontext stellten. In Kopenhagen zum Architekten ausgebildet, war er in seinen jungen Jahren so erfolgreich, daß er bereits mit 24 Jahren in den ‚Academic Council of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts‘ in Kopenhagen gewählt wurde. 1924 übernahm er die Dozentur des neu gegründeten Stadtplanungsinstituts, bevor er 1938 zum Professor ernannt wurde. Als Dozent an der Architectural Association hielt er sich 1927 für einige Monate in London auf. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg ging Rasmussen nach England. Dort wurde er 1949 als Produktdesigner in die ‚Royal Society of Arts‘ berufen. Als Gastprofessor lehrte er am MIT (1952) und in Yale (1954). 1958 folgte die Berufung zum Lethaby Professor für Architektur am Royal College of Art in London. Rasmussen war darüber hinaus langjährig Direktor der Architekturfakultät der Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Dänemark. Seine Beobachtungen und Analysen veröffentlichte er in zahlreichen Publikationen. Deren weitaus berühmteste ist das hier vorgelegte Buch London. The Unique City.
