Overview

As well as an introduction for undergraduates, Gottdiener and Budd try to clarify the great confusion and misunderstanding they found in the field's literature, and provide it a language free of ambiguity and fuzzy thinking. It is a reference not a narrative, they explain, and should be read according to the reader's interests and needs, rather than devoured from beginning to end. Among the topics are community, fiscal crisis, the informal economy, masculine space, postmodern and modern urbanism, and sustainable urbanization. They have not provided an index.
