Even in Sweden : racisms, racialized spaces, and the popular geographical imagination by Allan Pred( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 2,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Allan Pred writes compellingly about the reawakening of racism throughout Europe at the end of the twentieth century--even in Sweden, a country widely regarded as the very model of social justice and equality. Many thousands of non-European and Muslim immigrants and refugees who took advantage of Sweden's generous immigration policies now find themselves the object of discrimination and worse
Violent geographies : fear, terror, and political violence by Derek Gregory( )

""Violent Geographies is essential to understanding how the politics of fear, terror, and violence in being largely hidden geographically can only be exposed in like manner. The 'War on Terror' finally receives the coolly critical analysis its ritual invocation has long required.""--John Agnew, Professor of Geography, UCLA""Urgent, passionate and deeply humane, Violent Geographies is uncomfortable but utterly compelling reading. An essential guide to a world splintered and wounded by fear and aggression-this is geography at its most politically engaged, historically sens

City systems in advanced economies : past growth, present processes, and future development options by Allan Pred( Book )

30 editions published between 1977 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Originally published in 1977. This book provides answers to two fundamental and interrelated questions about the modern city. First, what are the processes underlying the past and present growth of 'post-industrial' metropolitan complexes and the economically advanced city-systems to which they belong? Second, what are the implications of on-going growth for efforts to reduce interregional inequalities of employment opportunity? The first section of the book introduces the basic concepts such as the properties of systems of cities. It then provides an analysis of their growth in advanced economies during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and looks to further possibilities."--

The external relations of cities during "industrial revolution"; with a case study of Göteborg, Sweden, 1868-1890 by Allan Pred( Book )

20 editions published between 1962 and 1973 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study covers some of the major adjustments in the external relations of cities during periods of industrial revolution, particularly as these alterations relate to the changing role of the city as a focal point in the regional and interregional space-economy. Four groups of hypotheses are presented and developed. The first is concerned with those external relations extending from technical innovations and the industrial scale-shifts associated with such innovations. The second group proceeds from the effects of reduced transportation costs, and the alterations in the relative accessibility of places within the regional and interregional space-economy. The third set is built upon transformations necessitated by the increased demand for food products. The fourth group comprises changes in the pattern of internal migration from rural areas to urban centers. (Author)

Recognizing European modernities : a montage of the present by Allan Pred( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over a century Europe has been characterized by a multiplicity of capitalist modernities. At any moment, each country possesses its own distinctly modern qualities which are partly shaped through interrelationships with other countries. Each European commodity society has experienced successive, but differently overlapping, periods of industrial modernity (large-scale factories and urban growth), high modernity (social modernization promoted by social engineering) and hypermodernity (the acceleration of modernity, yielding new circumstances and sensibilities). Investigating any part of contemporary hypermodern Europe thus requires that it be brought into constellation with its industrial and high modern past. Recognizing European Modernities explores a century of civilization through a critical examination of the extreme case of Sweden. Using montage - relayering multiple pasts and on-going presents - the book challenges the contemporary obsession with "postmodernity," demanding a deeper, more informed understanding of the extended danger characteristic of the European present. The author visits three spectacular spaces: the Stockholm Exhibition of 1897, the Stockholm Exhibition of 1930, and the Globe, a contemporary multi-purpose arena. Analysis of these pivotal spaces reveals the on-going process of modernization as new forms of consumption are repeatedly entangled in changing discourses of power, both of which become reworked and translated into cultural politics

Major job-providing organizations and systems of cities by Allan Pred( Book )

Topics of the five chapters include the general characteristics of major job-providing organizations, patterns of organizational headquarters and location, major job-providing organizations and interdependence within systems of cities, major job-providing organizations and the growth and development of advanced systems of cities, and problems of urban and regional development in relation to major job-providing organizations.
