Description - Publics and the City by Kurt Iveson
Publics and the City investigates struggles over the making of urban publics, considering how the production, management and regulation of 'public spaces' has emerged as a problem for both urban politics and urban theory. * Advances a new framework for considering the diverse spatialities of publicness in relation to the city * Argues that a city's contribution to the making of publics goes beyond the provision of places for public gathering * Examines a series of detailed case studies * Looks at the relationship between urbanism, public spheres, and democracy
