Since it was first published in 1972, 'The Study of Urban Geography' has established itself as the most coherent and extensive account of its subject. Its central purpose is the distillation of a wide range of work, much of it original research, into an effective synthesis of contemporary urban geography.
In this new edition, Harold Carter has substantially revised and updated the text. He has also added six new chapters on places - periodic, central, and dispersed; town plan and layout; urban location of economic activity; the city centre; the articulation of residential areas; and the housing market in western countries.

Harold Carter, formerly Gregynog Professor of Human Geography, University of Wales.Review:
Critical appraisal, clarity and comprehensiveness are some of the great virtues of this work... No student of urban geography can consider his education to have begun until he has read this book.
A comprehensive and well-regarded book.
