Environment and Planning

Five Volume Set
Edited by:

October 2011 | 2 800 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Academic publisher, Pion, has an outstanding reputation for publishing high quality journals in the fields of geography, physics, and experimental psychology. The four geographical journals in the Pion stable – the Environment and Planning series – are committed to publishing innovative, interdisciplinary quality papers which tackle a range of important questions. This collection, edited by a stellar editorial team under the leadership of Stuart Elden and published by SAGE, draws from all four journals to showcase the best of the best on offer in urban and regional research.

Volume One: Cities and Regions provides a selection of papers from the original journal in the series, focused on the opportunities and challenges associated with urban and regional transformations around the world. The wide-ranging remit of the journal allows readers to draw on sources from many disciplines - geography, sociology, economics, environmental science, political science, planning, and regional studies.

Volume Two: Planning and Design brings together seminal articles that promote research relating to spatial problems and plans concerning the built environment and the spatial structure of cities and regions. It brings an avowedly interdisciplinary approach to urban design, planning, modeling, simulation, GIS and spatial analysis, focusing on new scientific and computational approaches.

Volume Three: Government and Policy presents the path-breaking papers that have been at the forefront of research on government, governance, and innovations in public policy. The journal encourages international perspectives and dialogue as illustrated by the varied selection in this volume.

Volume Four: Society and Space brings together papers from the pre-eminent journal for interdisciplinary debates around society and space involving, among others, philosophers, sociologists, anthropologists, historians and political scientists. It includes articles that exemplify the discussion of the mutually constitutive relation between the social and the spatial.

Volume Five: Foundations, edited by the whole team, rounds off the collection with a selection of articles that eloquently demonstrate the theoretically sophisticated and practically relevant focus of this remarkable family of journals.
