- The term neighbourhood has been reduced to a word for a convenient geographical locator. In fact, most cities claim to be compiled of neighbourhoods, but this strays far from the term's original meaning - a spatial unit that people relate to. This book dispels this common misconception by integrating a complex historical record and multidisciplinary literature to produce a singular resource for understanding what is meant by neighborhood. Emily Talen provides a multi-dimensional, comprehensive view of what neighbourhoods signify how they're idealised and measured, and what their historical progression has been. Talen balances perspectives from sociology, urban history, urban planning, and sustainability among others in efforts to make neighbourhoods compatible with 21st century ideals.
