2022 Best Book in the Field of Urban Affairs
19 April 2022
This year, Dr Timothy J. Dixon (University of Reading) and Dr Mark Tewdwr-Jones (CASA, UCL) were selected as the recipients of the 2022 Best Book in the Field of Urban Affairs for 'Urban Futures: Planning for City Foresight and City Visions'.
“The Urban Affairs Association’s Best Book award committee is please to award the 2022 Best Book in Urban Affairs Award to Tim Dixon and Mark Tewdwr-Jones’ Urban Futures: Planning for City Foresight and City Visions'. Urban Futures presents a real challenge for those working at the intersections of urban scholarship and practice, addressing historicism in a novel way. Urban Futures asks leaders and cities to reimagine how we want to live, with an argument that is heavily situated in the present climate crises and recognizes the centrality of urban spaces.
The book’s questions and themes are applicable across the bevy of issues cities will face. Urban Futures is a good example of providing theoretically grounded work that offers clear and practical applications and steps in the process that should make it a choice for many future college courses.”
