English Text. Berlin, 2017; paperback, pp. 250, 300 col. ill., cm 21x23. The title Urban Eurasia discusses the topic of the city poised at the interface between languishing Soviet and new post-Soviet structures. Authors from the former USSR states give an account of urban experiences with particular reference to urban development. In addi tion to The Post-Soviet as a concept which stresses the signifi cance of years of shared experiences and common attributes that lend structure, the prerevolutionary historic heri tage of the former Soviet republics a lso fi nds prevalence. Phenomena governed by ethnic considerations in the urban surround ings as well as the urban daily routines of residents thereby gain markedly in visibility. This is especially so in the auto nomous national Russian repub lics within the central Asian region and the South Caucasus. The Soviet legacy is allayed to varying degrees by the accompaniment of European and Asian infl uences in these countries. It seems pertinent to no longer speak only of the post-Soviet city, but increas ingly of the type of the Eurasian city.
