Maria Balshaw, Liam Kennedy "Urban Space And Representation"

This is a really useful text for students trying to get to grips with urban studies. The authors give a challenging but accessible introduction to the ways in which urban theory has met with literary and cultural studies. The book then covers a refreshing range of cities and texts (nice to see more than the usual New York, London, LA) and often the familiar cities (like Paris, New York) are made different through the subjects discussed - Brooklyn and Harlem rather than downtown Manhattan, Parisian banlieues rather than the city of light. The book has some unusual pieces - discussion of disability, essay on skycam technology - and places - Singapore and Birmingham (one extreme to another?). Though it's undeniably theoretical it stays user friendly and as a guide to the multiple meanings of representation in cities it wins out.
