It is a must-read for any urban student and scholar the world over.’ // James 0. Wheeler, The Merle Prunty, Jr. Professor Emeritus of Geography, University of Georgia, USA // Urban Geography is an authoritative and stimulating introduction to the study of towns and cities. This book synthesises a wealth of material to provide a comprehensive introduction for students of urban geography, drawing on a rich blend of theoretical and empirical
information, to advance their knowledge of the city. // For the first time in the history of humankind, urban dwellers outnumber rural residents and this trend is destined to continue. Urban places, towns and cities are of fundamental importance: for the distribution of population within countries; in the organisation of economic production, distribution and exchange; in the structuring of social reproduction and cultural life; and in the allocation and exercise of power. Even those living beyond the administrative or functional boundaries of a town or city, will have their lifestyle influenced to some degree by a nearby or even distant city. // Urban Geography is divided into six main parts, which explain and discuss: // • The field of urban geography and the importance of a global perspective // • The historical growth of cities from the earliest times and the urban geography of the major world regions // • The dynamics of urban structure and land use change in Western cities // • Economy, society and politics in the Western city - // • The economic, social, political and environmental challenges faced by the Third World city // • The future of cities and cities of the future // Specific features include: // • Clearly structured and accessible text // • Superb illustrations: full colour plate section, over 150 informative diagrams // • Global case studies, boxed throughout // • Glossary of terms and key words, highlighted throughout the text // • Chapter
summaries, key points and study questions // • Annotated further reading lists // Michael Pacione is Professor of Geography at the-University of Strathclyde. // Urban Studies/Geography/Urban Planning // ISBN 0-415-19196-3 // 11 New Fetter Lane London EC4P 4EE // 29 West 35th Street New York NY 10001 // r> • , i • /"4 * ? * photos: Steve Stacey // Printed in Great Britain except for .S|ums of La Esperanza- // www.routledge.com by Peter Williams © World Council of Churches // .olLrVj // ? // Contents // List of plates xv // List of figures xvii // List of tables xxi // List of boxes XXV // Acknowledgements xxx // Copyright acknowledgements xxxi // Introduction xxxvi // PART ONE: THE STUDY OF URBAN GEOGRAPHY 1 // Chapter 1 Urban geography: from gJabaL talnciaL___3 // Introduction // Global trigger factors // Globalisation // The place of space and scale Local and historical contingency Processes of urban change Urban outcomes Daily life in the global village Why study urban geography? // Chapter 2 Concepts and theory in...urban geography... ...20 // Introduction // The scope of urban geography // Defining the urban // The place of space // The value of the urban dimension // A brief history of urban geography // In search of common ground // Levels of analysis in urban geography // CONTENTS // PART TWO: AN URBANISING WORLD 35 // Chapter 3...The origins and growth...of cities...37 // Introduction // Preconditions for urban growth Theories of urban origin Early urban hearths
