Description

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.
