    and suggestions that they deem relevant We received a total of 109 notes tackling issues from the social cultural physical climatic and financial points of view Notes that are related to social and cultural issues tackle the need of spreading awareness and education about cycling as well as public reactions to cyclists and fear of harassment and comments from the public this last comment is mostly expressed by females The total number of these notes is 56 out of the total notes 51 Notes that are related to physical issues tackle the unsuitable street infrastructure and the lack of driving regulations hilly topographies and climatic conditions The total number of these notes is 32 out of 109 29 Participants also mentioned the issue of prices and quality of bicycles in Jordan the high tariffs on bicycles and the low number of bicycle repair stores The total number of these notes is 14 out of 109 13 The remaining 7 suggestions 6 tackle the following issues starting with cycling routes in small areas clubs parks universities and neighbourhoods starting with recreational routes giving priority to routes for transportation purposes since recreational cycling activities already exist separating cycling routes from the street network the need for cyclists to use reflecting lights and the need to make use of already existing but yet unused streets such as that of Amman s Bus Rapid Transit BRT project A selection of the participants notes and comments I hope that establishing a bike path will have a good impact on our society I believe it would be harder for a female to go around on a bike since people are not familiar with this and this would cause some problems because we are not in an equal society It would be much easier for men Establishing

    doing any kind of outdoors activity alone biking walking running is the poor manners of people It s unbelievable how much harassment a woman is subjected to when working out outside in Jordan whether it is verbal comments or killer stares This project needs a lot of patience and it needs a long time to establish it considering the infrastructure and the need to change the public perception about it which would need huge awareness campaigns I am very excited to see such projects I tried hard to ride a bicycle every day but the prices of bicycles and the repair cost were too high Please help provide bicycles of good quality and low prices The main obstacle that would stop me from riding a bicycle is the high cost There needs to be road rules and regulations for both vehicles and bicycles I think it s hard to implement cycling tracks on the currently existing streets I guess the tracks should take place on new to be opened streets as I think this is more applicable Laws should be introduced to protect cyclists and the police should enforce them People on the roads in Jordan do not respect each other That is our biggest challenge This would be a nice project but I wonder if it would succeed given the current chaotic driving conditions and the lack of respect among road users Dealing with bicycles in the road should be addressed in training sessions I sometimes used to go to university on a bicycle riding along Airport Road which was dangerous It would be much safer and easier if there was a dedicated cycling path They need to lower the cost of bicycles We should try spreading the culture of cycling so that everyone would feel comfortable riding a

    participants mentioned that public reactions might hold them back from using a bicycle Not surprisingly the percentage of females who mentioned this issue is higher than that of males Moreover while females primarily mentioned issues such as the fear of harassment annoying comments from males and social reactions towards females riding bicycles males primarily addressed issues such as the reaction of drivers towards cyclists However it is worth mentioning that the percentages of both male and female participants who stated that they would use bicycles if dedicated lanes were implemented are high and are almost equal The table below presents some outcomes that were analyzed based on participants gender Out of the 96 possible cycling routes that survey participants suggested 39 routes are connected to universities within university campuses around campuses starting or ending at university campuses 25 of those 39 64 university related routes were suggested by students 32 out of the 96 suggested routes 33 were related to the University of Jordan along Queen Rania Street along streets surrounding the campus or as loops around the campus Also 7 out of 9 routes that were suggested in cities other than Amman are related to universities These are Yarmouk University and the Jordan University of Science and Technology in Irbid the King Hussein bin Talal University in Ma an al Tafileh University and Hashemite University in Zarqa While most of the survey participants 86 know how to ride bicycles it seems that owning a bicycle is not very common among them The results of the survey show that only one quarter 28 of the participants own bicycles Also only 31 of the participants who stated that they know how to ride a bicycle own one It is noticeable that the absence of dedicated bike paths is an issue that

  • The Oxford Handbook of Cities in World History (Arabic) » CSBE
    Amman Publications Resources Urban Crossroads The Oxford Handbook of Cities in World History The Oxford Handbook of Cities in World History Arabic دليل أكسفورد للمدن في التاريخ العالمي ن ش ر دليل أكسفورد للمدن في التاريخ العالمي قبل عدة أسابيع يضم هذا الدليل الذي حرره المؤرخ بيتر كلارك وأصدرته دار نشر جامعة أكسفورد البريطانية أكثر من 900 صفحة وشارك في تأليفه أكثر من خمسين مؤلف وبما أنني واحد من المؤلفين فليس من المستغرب أن تكون هذه المقالة تقديما إيجابيا لهذا الكتاب أكثر منها تقييما محايدا له يشمل هذا الكتاب كم ا وفيرا من المعلومات ويعالج جزء كبير منه المدن من الفترات القديمة حتى العصر الحديث ويتطرق إلى مدن في آسيا والشرق الأوسط وأوروبا وإفريقيا والأمريكتين ولذلك سيجد القارىء المهتم بتطور المدن في فترة معينة أو في إقليم معين أكثر من فصل في هذا الكتاب يتناول اهتماماته ومشاركتي في الكتاب هي جزء من هذه التغطية التاريخية الجغرافية إذ أنني كتبت عن المدن في الشرق الأوسط من 1950 وحتى الوقت الحاضر ولكن الكتاب يحتوي أيضا على فصول ترك ز على مواضيع معي نة بدلا من التركيز على منطقة جغرافية أو حقبة زمنية محددة ولذلك تضم هذه الفصول مواضيع تربط تطو ر المدن عبر فترات زمنية ومناطق جغرافية وقد أثارت اهتمامي بالذات الفصول التي تعالج تطور المدن في الفترة الحديثة أي في القرنين التاسع عشر والعشرين وسأ عنى في الجزء اللاحق من هذه المقالة بالمواضيع التي تعالجها هذه الفصول تتضمن هذه المواضيع التصنيع والهجرة والفقر وعدم المساواة والتفرقة الاجتماعية والبنية التحتية وحتى كيفية وصف المدينة في الأفلام كذلك تتطرق إلى المدن الإبداعية والمدن الضخمة التي نمت من خلال ابتلاع البلدات التي تقع حولها وأيضا المدن التي نمت في فترات الاستعمار وكذلك الضواحي ومدن الموانيء ت ظهر هذه الفصول كيف أن التصنيع على نطاق واسع ارتبط بالزيادة المطردة في فوائض المحاصيل الزراعية التي أد ت إلى انتقال السكان والاستثمار من المناطق الريفية إلى المدن حيث تمركزت الصناعة وقد بدأت هذه الظاهرة في إنجلترا في النصف الثاني من القرن الثامن عشر وانتشرت من هناك إلى أجزاء عديدة من أوروبا الغربية وأمريكا الشمالية ومع نمو هذه الظاهرة المعروفة بالثورة الصناعية ازدادت الهجرة إلى المدن زيادة كبيرة بحيث أصبحت أوروبا الغربية وأمريكا الشمالية تحتوي على أكبر نسب سكانية في المدن في العالم مع نهاية القرن التاسع عشر مع أن الشرق الأوسط واليابان كانا يضما ن نسب أعلى قبل ذلك أما الهجرة من الريف إلى المدن على نطاق واسع في العالم النامي فلم تحدث حتى النصف الثاني من القرن العشرين وقد كانت بسبب عوامل مرتبطة بالمركزية السياسية والإدارية والإقتصادية في المدن الكبيرة خاصة في العواصم وليس بالضرورة بالتصنيع كذلك تتطرق هذه الفصول إلى مواضيع الفقر وعدم المساواة والعنف في المدن إن هذه المشاكل منتشرة في المدن اليوم خاصة في مدن العالم النامي ولكنها أخذت أيضا بالإزدياد خلال العقود الثلاثة الماضية في مدن العالم الغربي الغنية إن السياسات التي و ضعت في العديد من بلدان العالم الغربي منذ الحرب العالمية الأولى والتي ركزت على تحقيق درجات أعلى من العدالة الإجتماعية وتكوين شبكات الأمان الإجتماعي قد بدأت بالتراجع بالمقابل فإن الإهتمام انتقل إلى وضع سياسات ت عمى بتحقيق نسب عالية من النمو الإقتصادي بالرغم من أن فوائد هذا النمو لا
