This volume explores the history of the urban university and its political and cultural traditions. In case studies, situated in different parts of the Western World and China, two basic aspects of the modern urban university's identity are analyzed: the locations of the universities within cities and the ways in which their administrators present the university in the local political arena. Locational choices and public appearances are interpreted from a historical and traditional perspective.
Audience: This book will be of particular interest to human geographers, planners and university administrators.
