Book Reviews

We are currently changing and developing our reviews section. Reviews will now also be published on the blog section of our website together with being published through SAGE OnlineFirst and in print as part of a journal issue.

You can now read book reviews on our blog here.


If you are interested in reviewing a book for Urban Studies, please get in touch with our Book Reviews Editor, Prof Michele Acuto.

For unsolicited book review queries, the Book Reviews Editor invites authors or publishers to suggest potential reviewers to review the title to ensure that reviewers with relevant expertise are targeted.

We are particularly interested in publishing book review forums featuring multiple reviewers and an author response. We welcome suggestions from reviewers, authors and publishers on potential book review forums.

Please note that some publishers now only offer an eBook for review although we always request a hard copy where possible.


Please read our book review guidelines here.
