Cities have emerged as the epicentres for many of today's ethno-national and religious conflicts. This book brings together key themes that dominate our current attention including emerging areas of contestation in rapidly changing and modernising cities and the effects of extreme and/or enduring conflicts upon ordinary civilian life.

Editorial Reviews

"An invaluable tool for any researcher interested in urban conflict studies. The three themes studying the phenomenon of urban conflict enable the reader to comprehend the multiple and overlapping layers of power, politics and space in fracturing and/or reconfiguring life of ordinary people in cities. As such, it is well-placed to offer a rich domain for understanding various ways to locate urban conflict "both inside and in between cities" (page 1) and emphasises the notions of socio-spatial practices in conflict studies. ... Examining the role of cities in urban conflict, the book is definitely one of the seminal works which delve into the deep relationship between people, everyday life and cities." - Urban Geography Research Group, UK
