About the Author:


J. John Palen is Professor Emeritus at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Review:


"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


" Palen presents the material clearly and concisely, and does a nice job of presenting
a variety of concepts and competing analytical frameworks. I have looked at other
books but have not found any that are as good as The Urban World."--Robert Kerstein, University of Tampa
