The article introduces the book Fear, Space and Urban Planning. A Critical Perspective from Southern Europe by S. Tulumello highlighting that the intention and the value of this book is to foreground the more opaque instances of fear in the urban dimension, opaque, i.e. from a mainstream or media perspective, the instances which do not make the news or are taken for granted as part of the routine of public debates. In order to do so, the author adopts a critical perspective on fear and urban planning, raising significant issues and questions about a wider range of theoretical implications and drawing on his research and his experience of living in Southern Europe.
