Additional Book Details

This revised fifth edition not only examines the new geographical patterns forming within and between cities, but also investigates the way geographers have sought to make sense of this urban transformation. It is structured into three sections: 'contexts', 'themes' and 'issues' that move students from a foundation in urban geography through its major themes to contemporary and pressing issues. The text critically synthesizes key literatures in the following areas:

the urban world

changing approaches to urban geography

urban form and structure

economy and the city

urban politics

planning, regeneration and urban policy

cities and culture

architecture and urban landscapes

images of the city

experiencing the city

housing and residential segregation

transport and mobility in cities

sustainability and the city.

This edition builds on the success of the comprehensively revised fourth edition and provides revised chapters on transport/mobility and urban futures, with additional updating of readings and some case studies. The book synthesises a wide range of literature on each subject and presents the material in a lively engaging way, supported by an expanded range of student friendly features, including exercises and suggestions for further study.
