To descri­be the space sur­roun­ding cities, pre­vious­ly con­si­de­red land­s­cape, the con­tri­bu­tors to this book use the term ter­rito­ry to deno­te both the sur­roun­dings that a city sub­su­mes into its own struc­tu­re and the core city its­elf, which is the cen­ter of this pro­cess of urba­ni­za­ti­on. Ter­rito­ry brings tog­e­ther the results of their rese­arch in six signi­fi­cant loca­ti­ons: the Nile Val­ley; Rome-Adria, Ita­ly; the Flo­ri­da hin­ter­lands; the Red River Del­ta in Viet­nam;  nort­hern Oman, and Belo Hori­zon­te and Minas Gerais in Bra­zil. And for each of the ter­ri­to­ries fea­tured in the book, they inves­ti­ga­te such key aspec­ts of urba­ni­za­ti­on as water manage­ment, net­works and infra­st­ruc­tu­re, agri­cul­tu­re, the role of mining and indus­tri­al pro­duc­tion, and sett­le­ments.
