Rob Cowan, a multi-talented mover and shaker or urban design in UK has come up with another useful book – The Dictionary of Urbanism. Like all good dictionaries, your attention will be continually diverted as you try to find the word or subject you thought you were looking for. However, you may actually learn something new and helpful on the way, so don’t be discouraged. Although produced with a UK focus, Rob includes differences of meanings from other cultures and, with his wit and the sketches by Lucinda Rogers, makes this a very worthwhile addition to your bookshelf. It is published by Streetwise Press.
