About this title:
Synopsis:
The first edition of The New Urban Sociology represented a major breakthrough text for urban sociology and urban studies programs. Now in its second edition, the text has been completely revised and updated throughout to include discussions of many current topics and new case study material highlighting recent work in the field. This book is organized around an integrated paradigm throughout – the sociospatial perspective – which considers the role played by social factors such as race, class, gender, lifestyle, economics, culture, and politics on the development of metropolitan areas.

From the Inside Flap:
Organized around an integrated paradigm—the sociospatial perspective—this breakthrough text considers the role played by social factors such as race, class, gender, lifestyle, economics, culture, and politics on the development of metropolitan areas. By moving beyond the traditional city/suburb dichotomy, the authors’ unique focus on the continuously changing nature of metropolitan regions makes the material more relevant to students’ personal experiences, and the cohesive conceptual framework engages students’ critical thinking skills. Fully revised throughout, this edition features expanded discussions of international regions, key concepts, and the effect of the economic crisis on housing markets, public policy, and urban development. Concise and accessible, this book offers students a brief, intelligible history of urban life from its origins to the industrial period, as well as a clear, sophisticated summary of urban social theory.
