With its unique perspective, concise history of urban life, clear summary of urban social theory, and attention to the impact of culture on urban development, this book gives students a cohesive conceptual framework for understanding cities and urban life.In this thoroughly revised 5th edition, authors Mark Gottdiener, Ray Hutchison, and Michael T.
