Hughes, Northumbria University, UK ‘Sarah Hughes and contributors challenge geographers to think of resistance as emergent, often quotidian, and diffuse.

However, we still have a lot to learn about how to do this work better. This book provides a novel contribution, with authors drawn from UK government, parliament, research funders and academia. It focuses on three key areas: how academics articulate the value and relevance of research to policy, the different ways in which academic-policy engagement occur and how research impacts upon policy. The contributors bring a vast amount of experience to bear on these topics and as such help to move forward our thinking on how academic-policy engagement might help to promote the use of research to support policy making.’ – Annette Boaz and Kathryn Oliver, Transforming Evidence and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK 2022 288 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 895 7 £100.00 / $145.00 2023 Paperback 978 1 0353 2210 7 £31.95 / $47.00 eBook • Elgaronline How To Guides NEW IN PAPERBACK Urban Violence, Resilience and Security Governance Responses in the Global South Edited by Michael R. Glass, Taylor B. Seybolt and Phil Williams, University of Pittsburgh, US ‘Urbanization is one of the most significant mega-trends of the modern era. It is also one of the most profoundly misunderstood. This knowledge gap is explored by Michael Glass, Taylor Seybolt and Phil Williams who examine the multiple causes, consequences and characteristics of global urban transformation. In their sweeping edited volume, contributors reflect on how the history, politics and economics of urbanization influences (and is influenced by) urban violence. A series of vivid case studies of understudied cities from Africa, Asia and the Americas also reveal the complex relationships between urbanization, insecurity and resilience.’ – Robert Muggah, co-founder of the Igarape Institute and SecDev Group, Brazil 2022 224 pp Hardback 978 1 80037 972 5 £90.00 / $130.00 2023 Paperback 978 1 0353 2211 4 £27.95 / $41.95 eBook • Elgaronline GEOGRAPHY, CITIES & TOURISM NEW TITLES, JULY – SEPT 2023
