Reviews

"The book is well written and easy to follow. Moreover, the author also provides a useful summary and take-away key messages at the end of each chapter. Indeed, this book is suitable not just for academia, but also for all stakeholders involved with city planning and development. It is an indispensable book for people who want to create a better, livable, and sustainable city." — Regional Science Policy and Practice

"Readers interested in knowing how to enhance retailing will find this book very relevant and informative … Issues such as the regeneration of commercial and urban centers and how to bring back locals, visitors, and tourists are crucial for the economy and social lives of cities all over the world." — AAG Review of Books

"The notion of commercial urbanism is both novel and engaging, since much of the vibrancy of cities comes from commerce, consumption, and entertainment. The idea itself is a major contribution of the book." — Tridib Kumar Banerjee, University of Southern California
