9780131134959: Deciphering the City

Globalization has changed the roles of cities in the global economy; the author conveys the need to understand the new order in our world, especially in light of the events of 9/11/2001. The knowledge that can be acquired from this book provides readers with a unique benefit: knowing about cities allows residents to see the opportunities as well as the risks that arise in them. This book allows readers to understand how we cope in today's world and why we live our lives the way we do within our communities. This book begins with an introduction to the phenomenon of globalization, and how the changes it has brought about have affected the social, political, and economic institutions of societies in both the more-developed and less-developed worlds. The book's second section concentrates on the psychology of the city and the community-building process; while its third section illustrates the city's structure and patterns. Finally, the author concentrates on urban problems and solutions to them. An excellent, up-to-date resource for urban sociologists and others who work in the fields of criminology, urban planning, health, housing, research, and development.
