"The Urban World is clearly better than competing books. It does an effective job
exposing students to the basic tenets of urban politics, history, economics, and
geography, and helps prepare them for deeper deliberation and research. I will
adopt. It is the only book appropriate for my Introduction to Urban Studies
course."--Cara Robinson, Tennessee State University
