Cities as Built and Lived Environments: Scholarship from Muslim Contexts, 1875 to 2011. (October 2014)
Edited by: Aptin Khanbaghi
From Tehran in Iran to Istanbul in Turkey, and from Herat in Afghanistan to Khartoum in Sudan, the rich diversity of the Muslim world is strikingly expressed through its myriad of cities. This reference volume presents over 200 abstracts of scholarship examining cities as both built and lived environments. They deal with the important subjects such as urban growth in the last 50 years, infrastructure and the environment and migration from rural areas. The historical periods covered span from the Umayyad Caliphate to the present day.
