Call for a Bibliography on Urban Studies

Let’s create together a work-in-progress bibliography about urban studies focused on post-socialist countries. You can contribute with references to books you consider particularly interesting on this topic. Of course you can also suggest relevant books about your specific research field or about the city you are currently studying.
Please click on “comment” right below this post to write a reference. You don’t need to sign up. It’s very simple. At the end we will put together all your suggestions in a well-framed bibliography, which may be useful to everyone, students included. We look forward to reading your comments!
