Urbanization in Southeastern Europe displays significant idiosyncrasies.
While the region was predominantly rural long into the 20th century,
cities grew rapidly after WWII, causing deep socio-cultural changes which
gained in momentum after the end of socialism. The articles in this
volume, originally presented at the conference `Urban Life and Culture in
Southeastern Europe‘ in Belgrade, May 2005, explore these changes past and
present, focusing on urban culture, social topography, urban planning, and
urban-rural relations.
