Tourism, Ethnic Diversity and the City fills a gap in existing research in terms of how immigration relates to urban tourism and investigates the new theoretical insights and challenges for empirical research using informative case studies drawn from several advanced economies in Europe, North America and Australia. This enlightening book clearly explores the frontiers of knowledge on the interrelationship between tourism, migration, ethnic diversity and place. Exploring further the manifestations of ethnic diversity that have been commodified by immigrants in gateway cities, questioning how these expressions of culture can be transformed into vehicles for further developing the urban tourism economy. Tourism, Ethnic Diversity and the City presents a multidisciplinary approach drawing on key names from the field of geography, sociology, planning and political science and will appeal to those with an interest in any of these areas.
Low Carbon Cities is a book for practitioners, students and scholars in architecture, urban planning and design. It features essays on ecologically sustainable cities by leading exponents of urban sustainability, case studies of the new directions low carbon cities might take and investigations of how we can mitigate urban heat stress in our cities’ microclimates. The book explores the underlying dimensions of how existing cities can be transformed into low carbon urban systems and describes the design of low carbon cities in theory and practice. It considers the connections between low carbon cities and sustainable design, social and individual values, public space, housing affordability, public transport and urban microclimates. Given the rapid urbanisation underway globally, and the need for all our cities to operate more sustainably, we need to think about how spatial planning and design can help transform urban systems to create low carbon cities, and this book provides key insights.

Sydney is increasingly a global city, linked to Asia by migration and international corporations, and growing tourist numbers, from traditional Bondi Beach to the Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and leading up to the Millennium Olympics. This book is the first contemporary overview of this exciting city, tracing the history of change from the existing physical contours, and natural hazards, to the cosmopolitan multicultural city of diverse ethnic spaces. It traces the planning issues, from environmental management to high rise building and urban consolidation, reviews the dynamic economic base, from agricultural markets to financial services, and examines spatial diversity in health, housing and amongst the real or mythical western suburbs. It examines the way in which Sydney has been seen with respect to art, literature and music, and seeks to chart its destiny into the next millennium.
