Summary

''Our objective has been to write a textbook that would uncover all the excitement and richness found in cities, while tackling the wide variety of urban challenges. We offer a comprehensive treatment of urban geography, to include the most current research in urban studies, to introduce elements of urban theory and methodology, and to address the urban experience as a global one. This book is self-consciously oriented around particular topics, and it introduces some subjects not typically found within existing urban geography texts. We hope that the reader will discover just how much cities matter - to urbanites and nonurbanites alike.''--BOOK JACKET.
