Anthropological perspectives are not often represented in urban studies, even though many anthropologists have been contributing actively to theory and research on urban poverty, racism, globalization, and architecture. The New Urban Anthropology Reader corrects this omission by presenting 12 cross-cultural case studies focusing on the analysis of space and place. Five images of the city--the divided city, the contested city, the global city, the modernist city, and the postmodern city--serve as the framework for the selected essays. These images highlight current research trends in urban anthropology, such as poststructural studies of race, class, and gender in the urban context; political economic studies of transnational culture; and studies of the symbolic and social production of urban space and planning. Selected Chapters: Theorizing the City: An Introduction by Setha M. Low Part I. The Divided City The Changing Significance of Race and Class in an African American Community, Steven Gregory Fortified Enclaves: The New Urban Segregation by Teresa P. R. Caldeira Part II. The Contested City Spatializing Culture: The Social Production and Social Construction of Public Space in Costa Rica, Setha M. Low Part III. The Global City Wholesale Sushi: Culture and Commodity in Tokyo's Tsukiki Market, Ted Bestor Part IV. The Modernist City The Modernist City and the Death of the Street by James Holston Part V. The Postmodern City Spatial Discourse and Social Boundaries: Re-imagining the Toronto Waterfront by Matthew Cooper

Shipping Law covers the whole spectrum of English shipping law and is the only student text to address both wet and dry shipping law matters. It takes a structured and integrated approach to the highly specialised rules of shipping, which are placed in their commercial context and related to the general principles of English contract and tort law. This fifth edition offers a brand new section on arbitration, as well as detailed consideration of recent developments in law from the LOF 2011 and the 2010 Protocol to the HNS Convention. With in-depth commentary and analysis on recent important judical decisions of the Supreme Court in The Cendor Mopu, and of the Court of Appeal in The Eternity, The Wadi Sudr, The Kos, and The Eagle Valencia, this textbook presents fully-to-date and well-balanced coverage of key cases and is an essential reference source for both students and those in practice.
