remetroNew! Prof. Jesus J. Lara, has just published Remaking Metropolis: Global Challenges of the Urban Landscape (Routledge) a volume Lara co-edited with Prof. Edward A. Cook.

Remaking Metropolis examines examples both of urban decay and destruction, as well as urban rebirth. It shows why particular approaches were successful, or did not achieve their objectives. By bringing together innovative approaches to urban living from across the world, and by demonstrating how local initiatives can contribute to global solutions, the book establishes a framework in which to evaluate current and future developments for urban change, and to stimulate a reassessment of urban redevelopment and policies.

 

jouNew! Dr. Jesus J. Lara Guest Editor/Contributor to Special Issue of Journal of Urbanism. Associate Professor Jesus J. Lara was guest editor and contributor to a special issue of the Journal of Urbanism, Latino Urbanism: Placemaking in 21st Century American Cities, which expands upon the growing literature on Latino Urbanism, focusing on its role in shaping and incorporating Latino needs in the development of American cities. Latinos are assuming prominence in our social, political and economic systems, and they are having a growing impact in shaping the built environment. Evidence of this can be found in the United States Census Bureau’s America Facts in 2011.
