  • Provides a comprehensive approach to the economic factors that both define and affect modern urban areas, considering the economics of cities as a whole, rather than separating them into isolated topics
  • Analyzes topics such as urban housing, real estate markets, growth, and social and policy issues, and how these affect the economic functioning of a city
  • Includes in-depth discussions of real estate markets and policy issues
  • Considers the changing role of the city in economic life, and the effects of social problems, such as crime, poverty, and education that often accompany these changes
  • Offers a dedicated author-hosted website containing supplemental material, available at http://www.uic.edu/~mcmillen.
