From the Publisher"Lively and engaging, Urban Geography succeeds in summarising recent trends in the discipline whilst showing the continuing relevance of classic urban theories. The breadth of material covered in this fourth edition is remarkable, covering the gamut of urban cultural, social, economic and political processes. New sections on residential segregation and urban transportation shed light on some of the most pressing urban problems of our time – congestion, homelessness, slum housing – while other chapters have been updated to incorporate new examples and case studies. Urban Geography is surely the most readable and comprehensive introduction to the field currently available." Phil Hubbard, Professor of Urban Studies, University of Kent, UK.
"A truly student-centered text, the fourth edition provides a wealth of material, a critical gaze, a well-illustrated text, detailed references, interesting case studies, annotated bibliographies, and an accessible style. It is the ideal urban geography text: interesting, lively, engaged, dealing with critical issues and stimulating critical thinking. The most accessible, concise and engaging urban geography textbook on the market." John Rennie Short, University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA.
