Yet, I found this book to be her most interesting piece of writing. It is experimental in form and successfully mixes stories of real-world change processes, with auto-biographical reflection and conceptual analysis in a way which really made me think. The book is an erudite and passionate articulation of pathways to action at a time when the world urgently needs to nurture the “proliferating micro worlds” that she describes.’ – Danny Burns, The University of Sussex, UK June 2022 256 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 304 4 £90.00 / $130.00 How to Research Guides The Elgar Companion to Urban Infrastructure Governance Innovation, Concepts and Cases Edited by Matthias Finger, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne, Switzerland and Istanbul Technical University (ITÜ), Turkey and Numan Yanar, Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST), Korea and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, United Arab Emirates ‘The Elgar Companion to Urban Infrastructure Governance is an impressive collection of contributions on a variety of highly relevant topics.
