Tip-toe through the pages of this beautiful bedtime read-aloud, and try not to break the spell of the peaceful, quiet, wintry north.

In this bedtime lullaby beautifully brought to life by the award-winning Isabelle Arsenault, illustrator of Jane, the Fox, and Me, a northern night unfolds as a young child sleeps. Wrapped in a snug, downy blanket, a snowflake falls, and then another and another. As the magic of the night outside takes hold animals awaken, snow swirls, stars twinkle and winds whisper a lyrical, enchanting read-aloud evokes a winter's night, while gently lulling a child to peaceful sleep.

Concepts of space, place and territory lie at the core of disciplines such as geography and urban studies. While books are regularly published on each of these concepts, shedding light on different aspects, seldom are the juxtapositions and inter-relations between these concepts explored. This book shows how the concepts and practices of space, place, and territory are interdependent but not interchangeable, how they each complement and compete with each other, and how conceptual spatial matrices might help us to analyse complex spatialities, in intellectual and practical terms. It singles out the urban context as the realm where critical social, cultural, economic, political, and technological transformations challenge the way we perceive, conceive, and manage multiple spatialities. The book begins by arguing that spatial matrices may be used as conceptual tools to apprehend and understand the multiple spatialities we live in, and that these have changed over recent decades. It then discusses the conceptual construction of space, place, and territory, stressing their common roots, but also their uniqueness and interdependence. The possible conceptual pairs in the matrix are next examined: space and place, space and territory, place and territory, and also space and space, place and place, and territory and territory, when divergent approaches for each term meet. In a chapter entitled 'Sensing the City', the book proposes that space is the most abstract of the three concepts, but it is also the most concrete. We smell space, we touch it. Our senses, though, are mediated by cultural values and technologies. The following chapter on 'Mapping the City', argues that different methodologies have intentionally or implicitly favoured features of space, place, or territory in the representation of the urban realm, and consequently influence the way we apprehend and conceive the city. The long history of city plans as the materialization of how spatial features refle
