Stephen Marshall joins Peter Hall and David Banister as the Third Editor of Built Environment
We are delighted that from 1 January 2013 Dr Stephen Marshall joined Sir Peter Hall and Professor David Banister as Editor of Built Environment. His expertise in urban morphology and design are invaluable. And he has, of course, guest-edited three issues of the journal: Volume 25, no 2, Travel Reduction: Policy into Practice; Volume 29, no 3, New Urbanism; Volume 37, no 4, Urban Morphology and Design (with Olgu Çaliskan).
And we welcome three new members to the Editorial Board
Pierre-Arnaud Barthel, LATTS (Laboratoire Techniques, Territoires et Sociétés), Institut Français d’Urbanisme – Université Paris-Est, Marne-la-Vallée, who guest-edited the issue on Arab mega-projects (Volume 36, no 2), is interested in sustainable urbanism and other planning issues in France and the Middle East.
Karin Krokfors has her own architectural practice in Helsinki. She guest-edited the recent issue on Co-Housing (Volume 38, no 3). She is also a researcher in the Land Use Planning and Urban Studies Group at Aalto University.
Roberto Moris is Deputy Director of the Institute of Urban and Territorial Studies and Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Santiago. He is also researcher for the National Research Center for Integrated Natural Disasters Management CIGIDEN and Director of PLANEO magazine.

Planning Asian Cities: Risks and Resilience
Edited by Stephen Hamnett, University of South Australia, Adelaide and Dean Forbes, Flinders University, Adelaide
The editors have assembled a star-studded collection of chapter authors, each an acknowledged in their field … I would strongly recommend this book for courses in Asian-Pacific geography and urbanization, as well as urban planning.

Dubai: Behind an Urban Spectacle
Yasser Elsheshtawy, UAE University, Al Ain, UAE.
Subtly engaging with wider literatures on globalisation, consumption, migration, geography, urban planning and architecture, the book makes a hugely welcome contribution to a subject field otherwise dominated by political and economic analyses and to the interdisciplinary field of urban studies.
