"Religion, gender and urban planning intersect variously. Their interrelationships change over time, just as they vary from place to place. What emerges is the subtle and varied kaleidoscope described in these chapters." -- Grace Davie, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, University of Exeter, UK"This book opens up a new frontier in the field of gender and the environment. Despite discussion of a post-secular age, religion and spirituality have a presence as core elements in the lives of many. The diversity of the topics in this book, which straddles Christianity, Islam and non-religious spirituality exposes the importance of the interaction between faith and belief, gender and space. The editor is an internationally renowned planning academic, and chapters on planning help to ground the discussion in contemporary practice. Researchers, students, academic staff and practitioners will find valuable insights in this collection." -- Marion Roberts, Emeritus Professor of Urban Design, University of Westminster, UK
