    A poor example

    As a student of the social sciences, I came to this book in hopes of gaining a greater understanding of contemporary problems being addressed by urban sociologists. However, to my great disappointment, the book did little more than offer a jumble of vaguely or inaccurately defined terms and amusing, if uninformative, catchphrases. In addition, the writing was needlessly complex, which obscured the authors¿ message, if indeed the authors had a message.
