Contributions from Simmel, Wirth, Park, Burgess, Zukin, Sassen, Smith and Castells are included among the 40 generous selections.The urban world is a provocative terrain to contemplate central institutions, structures and problems of the social world and how they have transformed over the last 200 years. The reader traverses this terrain with sections on urban social theory, social difference in the city, culture in everyday life, culture and the urban economy, globalization and the world system and urban social movements. Selections are predominantly sociological, but some readings go across disciplinary boundaries.The reader provides an essential resource for students of urban studies bringing together important but widely dispersed writings. Editorial commentaries preceding each entry not only demonstrate its significance, but also outline the issues surrounding the topic while the associated bibliography enables deeper investigations.
