Since it was first published, The Study of Urban Geography has established itself as the most coherent and comprehensive account of the subject. Now completely revised and updated, it still retains the basic structure of the original volume. Its central purpose is the distillation of a wide range of work, including much original research, into an effective synthesis of contemporary urban geography. This new edition reflects the substantial developments in the field since the appearance of the third edition in 1981. There are new chapters on urban transport, on planning, and on the city under socialism. The author also examines recent advances in the geography of inequality and of welfare in cities, and in the widening and extension of the traditional dimensions of social status, ethnicity, and life cycle in patterning city space.
