A rare and generous effort of collaborative work between graduate students and professors, this book provides a road map to the complex reverse engineering of contemporary urban studies texts from a methodological perspective.
Raquel Rolnik is Professor of Urban Planning at the University of São Paulo.
The book provides good state of the art discussion of urban studies and research methodologies (written by the editors). The main chapters (written by post-graduate researchers) that form the main core of the book are very useful to introduce students to the main debates in the discipline, but they also show how postgraduate students can learn how to engage with these debates critically while preparing assignments and developing their research.
