9780205816859: Experiencing Cities (2nd Edition)

For undergraduate and graduate courses in urban sociology.

 

A  social psychological perspective informed by political economy encourages sociological understanding of the city and suburb in the past and in the contemporary world.

 

Experiencing Cities is an introduction to urban sociology based heavily on microsociology and symbolic interaction theory–emphasizing the way people experience the urban world in their everyday lives, interact with one another, and create meaning from the physical and human environments of their cities.

"The text emphasizes some areas -- such as the city as a work of art -- that other texts ignore.  I have a very favorable overall impression of this material. To my mind, this is the strongest of the urban sociology texts available." 

Walter Carroll, Bridgewater State College

 

“It is accessible, informative, and has good depth. The scope of information covered is considerable, and yet remains comprehensive and organized.”

Mark Hardt, Montana State University, Billings

 

“My overall impressions are very positive. The synthesis of interactionism and political economy seems the right way to go.”

Peter Grahame, Pennsylvania State University, Schuylkill

 

“I liked this textbook, the students in the class liked the textbook; in fact, I received a number of totally unsolicited thumbs ups on this book over the course of the semester. It's well-written and well-organized, interesting to read.”

Donna Bird, University of Southern Maine
