Sonia Roitman publishes new Routledge Handbook of Urban Indonesia

After more than two years in the making, Prof Deden Rukmana (Alabama University) and Sonia Roitman (UQ|UP) are thrilled to announce a new edited volume, "Routledge Handbook of Urban Indonesia".

The publication of this book is the celebration of a collective effort from 64 contributors, including established scholars such as Christopher Silver, Ashok Das, Nicholas Phelps, Bakti Setiawan, and Tommy Firman, and early career scholars from Indonesian universities and elsewhere.

As the first book in English that compiles a variety of case studies of Indonesian cities, this book offers the opportunity for a deep exchange of ideas with researchers and practitioners working outside Indonesia and an expansion of conversations and debates about similarities and differences between Global North and South, and among the regions in the South. It has a collection of 27 chapters, featuring cities of different sizes throughout the Indonesian archipelago.
