Urban geography in Canada is constantly undergoing changes and, as such, the study of the discipline must reflect these changes. Approaching the subject from a unique vantage point, Canadian Urban Regions: Trajectories of Growth and Change brings together some of the most respected scholars in the discipline to discuss important developments and examine the path urban geography in Canada is following. The organization of this text will help upper-level students studying urban geography to expand on concepts already gleaned in their introductory years-it moves from a theoretical framework, on to practical case studies, and then to a discussion of where the discipline is headed in the future. By providing insight into both theoretical perspectives and contemporary views, this text fully encompasses the changes and challenges in Canadian urban geography today.
