Overview

The articles in this reader have been grouped into five sections and together they provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary urban development in industrial societies.

The scope is broader than that of other available urban readers in that it attempts to give balanced coverage not only to intraurban structure but also to intraurban relations and urban societal issues. The role of planning and state intervention in contemporary urban development, given scant attention elsewhere, is also fully discussed.
