Book Launch
Cities for a Small Continent: International Handbook of City Recovery by Professor Anne Power

LSE Housing and Communities, with support from La Fabrique de la Cité invites you to the launch of Anne Power's latest publication 'Cities for a Small Continent'. This book draws together 10 years of ground-level research into the ways Europe's ex-industrial cities are treading new paths in sustainability. Anne Power uses seven case-study cities to detail how and why city change happens, and how cities in the world's smallest, most crowded, most city-loving continent can build a more viable, balanced and sustainable urban future.

Chaired by Professor Ricky Burdett, this event will explore the causes and consequences of urban challenges in post-industrial European cities and the potential that their model offers in creating more sustainable cities. Bruce Katz of the Brookings Institution will situate this study in a US-context whilst Anne Power will set out the European perspective. Speakers confirmed are:
  • Professor Ricky Burdett, LSE Cities
  • Professor Anne Power, LSE Housing and Communities and Professor of Social Policy
  • Bruce Katz, Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution
Cities for a Small Continent will be available to buy at the event. There will also be an opportunity to have your book signed by Anne Power and Bruce Katz.

The event is free but booking is essential. Please RSVP to to register your interest.
