Abstract Is there a clear distinction between development and decline in contemporary urban life? In this volume we argue that there is not. Irregularities of development express themselves in contrasts, and these contrasts are particularly important outside of metropolitan centres, in places where we can simultaneously observe the signs of development and the symptoms of "development of underdevelopment." The book is divided into two parts, Global and Local Contexts of the Postcommunist City, and The City in Transition—Gentrification, Revitalisation, Activisation. It presents the discussion between Polish and German researchers on the problems of decline/ development in the area of urban studies. The authors are: Jörg Dürrschmidt, Heidi Fichter-Wolf, Katrin Großmann, Annegret Haase, Sandra Huning, Thomas Knorr-Siedow, Bastian Lange, Konrad Miciukiewicz, Jarosław Mikołajec, Michal Nowosielski, Marek Nowak, Dieter Rink, Annett Steinführer, and Marcin Tujdowski.
