Hot Cities A Transdisciplinary Agenda Wendy Steele, RMIT University, Australia, John Handmer, International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria and Ian McShane, RMIT University, Australia ‘In the evolving reality of a heated planet, it is largely the voices of select natural sciences, finance, technology and risk appraisal that we hear. Hot Cities opens a far more imaginative and creative dialogue around climate change and our hugely varied cities, wielding diverse knowledges and values to offer both sharp warnings and inviting future prospects.’ – Steve Dovers, Australian National University Aug 2023 196 pp Hardback 978 1 78643 458 6 £80.00 / $115.00 eBook • Elgaronline Cities series NEW IN PAPERBACK Handbook on Cities and Complexity Edited by Juval Portugali, Tel Aviv University, Israel ‘This is a fascinating collection of discussions by leading authors, ranging from philosophical perspectives to conceptual frameworks and mathematical models across many disciplines. A unifying theme is the role of human cognition and decision making, addressed via psychology, uncertainty and risk, evolutionary game theory, behavioral economics and more. The book should be a reference to anyone interested in the history of the field and as a source of ideas for the opportunities (and challenges) of treating cities as complex systems in contrast to less holistic approaches to urban planning and policy.’ – Luis Bettencourt, University of Chicago, US 2021 456 pp Hardback 978 1 78990 011 8 £200.00 / $294.00 Sept 2023 Paperback 978 1 0353 2525 2 c £43.00 / c $63.00 eBook • Elgaronline Research Handbooks in Urban Studies series 2 Save up to 20% at e-elgar.com I For our electronic content, visit: elgaronline.com Research Handbook on the Sociology of Globalization Edited by Christian Karner, University of Lincoln, UK and Dirk Hofäcker, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany ‘This Research Handbook dynamically energizes the discipline of sociology while enriching our understanding of the global.
