Synopsis:
Here is an extensive and highly original inquiry into the origins, dynamics, and internal order of the modern metropolis. Allen J. Scott demonstrates how the metropolis emerges out of the basic mechanisms of production and work in contemporary society, and how those mechanisms guide general patterns of urban development. His work will be stimulating to social scientists and to planners and policy makers as well.

Review:
"Scott has something different to say (a new and innovative perspective on the modern city. . . . This is a fine book, and . . . a major contribution to our understanding of the modern metropolis." (Gordon L. Clark, Carnegie Mellon University)
