Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments

This is a comprehensive guide to the latest scholarship in urban studies. Traditional models, radical interpretations and post-modern concerns are synthesized in a readable, accessible and evocative account of the central issues of contemporary urbanism and city life. The book provides an account of urban dynamics throughout the world and exemplifies the most revealing perspectives and current ideas on the city, urban economics, urban social structure and semiotics of the built environment.

Urban geography is in desperate need of a textbook that characterizes the field of something much richer than that produced by the positivist epistemology of the 1960s. In its themes and organizational framework, in its approach and in its breadth of coverage, this book is set to fulfil that need.


“The strengths of this text are its breadth of coverage of the main debates in the field, the author’s continuing and lively engagement with his subject and his genuine attempts to cross paradigms in discussion of what constitutes different understandings of urban orders. The comparative material… is a welcome change from the usual northern hemispheric focus of texts written in English.” Urban Policy and Research

“The first thing to say about this text is that it is clearly aimed at undergraduate students… Short and his publishers have put in a great deal of effort to ensure the book’s accessibility. At a time when the demands placed upon students are growing, the ease with which information can be traced is an increasingly important consideration. This textbook achieves this remarkably effectively.” Paul Teedon, The Geographical Journal.

“This is an excellent book and has relevance for all academic fields concerned with urban dynamics. As an introduction to, and overview of, urban events during this last century it is thorough and presented in a very readable and accessible form.” Lone Poulsen, University of Witwatersrand


Traditional models, radical interpretations and post-modern concerns are synthesized in this accessible and evocative account of the central issues of contemporary urbanism and city life.
