John Connell is an Associate Professor, Division of Geography at University of Sydney.Review:
Packed with genuinely interesting facts, figures and tables, which will provide both students and specialists with a deep understanding of societal change in a rapidly dynamic Pacific Asian city. Progress in Human Geography Provides a wealth of interesting case study material for undergraduates, particularly those taking options in fields such as urban geography or planning. And for the small minority of geography students taking modules on Australia this text will be a real asset. But you do not have to be an undergraduate geographer (less still an urban or Australian specialist) to enjoy this book. It offers a highly readable account of a city whose personality has captured the imagination of a much wider public. This is in no sense a travel book but it will be of considerable interest both within and beyond the community of academic geographers. Geography A highly readable and informative picture of the city ... wide-ranging in its coverage .. well written and well illustrated with an abundance of maps, tables and black and white photographs. Geography A scholarly and useful collection ... will be useful for undergraduates, especially of urban studies. H-Urban Robert Freestone's chapter is an outstanding contribution to the collection. Focusing on urban planning, he covers the local factors that historically created Sydney's shape and texture. H-Urban
