Overview

The first edition of The New Urban Sociology represented a major breakthrough text for urban sociology and urban studies programs. Now in its second edition, the text has been completely revised and updated throughout to include discussions of many current topics and new case study material highlighting recent work in the field. This book is organized around an integrated paradigm throughout – the sociospatial perspective – which considers the role played by social factors such as race, class, gender, lifestyle, economics, culture, and politics on the development of metropolitan areas.
