    Book review opportunity POSTCOLONIAL DUBLIN: Imperial Legacies and the Built Environ

    From time to time, I'll get notices offering review copies of planning and urbanism-related books. Here's the most recent that arrived. If you're interested in a copy of this book for a review on Cyburbia, please drop me a line.

    A groundbreaking examination of how history and politics can change the face of a city.

    Please let me know if you'd like a review copy.

    Postcolonial Dublin shows how perpetrators of colonialism in Ireland have made use of urban planning and architecture to underscore and legitimate ideologies. Looking at objects such as Londonderry's Market House, Patrick Abercrombie's Dublin of the Future, and the urban renewal project of today's Temple Bar, Andrew Kincaid highlights Ireland's colonial history and the significance of architecture in the evolution of national identity.

    ³An important, even provocative, work.² ‹Seamus Deane
