"The city is an obvious but confounding object of geographical analysis; urban structure and life are shaped by an astounding array of social, economic, and political dynamics. This volume embraces these complexities of city form in a wide-ranging, readable, well-informed, and highly interdisciplinary analysis of key topics in urban studies. With its fresh approach, this book provides an accessible entry point for the newcomer to urban geography, yet also delivers creative insights for those with greater familiarity."
- Professor Steven K. Herbert, University of Washington
- An introductory chapter providing a succinct overview of the recent developments in the field.
- Over 20 key concept entries with comprehensive explanations, definitions and evolutions of the subject.
- A glossary, figures, diagrams and suggested further reading.
This is an ideal companion text for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students in urban geography and covers the expected staples of the subdiscipline from global cities and urban nature to transnational urbanism and virtuality.
