This second Urban Communication Reader extends the interdisciplinary research focus to explain and understand communication in cities through an examination of images that shape urban identity, policies and action Scholars herein probe different topics from different directions, and direct readers toward a common urban orientation to produce new insights into urban communication.

The topics include: changes in the use of urban land whether in renewed downtowns or expanded malls; changes in media technology; the impact of events on spaces and places from sports to natural disasters; the urban function of advertising, commerce, health and community attachment; and relections on the traditional geographical role of streets and front porches amidst the newly emerging virtual places created by the Internet.

These entries shed new light on urban communication, on the city as intersection; on the tensions among individuals and the general good; on conflicts between public and private space; and on the sites and rights in cities. The Reader adds another dimension which explains how communication and cities are inseparable and perpetual.
