Overview

"This third edition of Urban Geography continues to examine the new geographical patterns that are forming within cities and the ways in which geographers have sought to make sense of this urban transformation. Introducing both traditional and contemporary approaches and perspectives in urban geography, this book examines the globalisation of the urbanisation process and explores ways in which governments and institutions have responded to the resulting challenges." This extensively revised new edition, styled in a student-friendly chapter format, includes a new chapter on urban regeneration and comprehensively updated case studies, all illustrated by numerous figures, photos and tables. This is a valuable introduction to urban geography for all geography students.
