This third edition of a classic urban sociology text examines critical but often-neglected aspects of urban life from a social-psychological theoretical perspective.


* Provides a complete analysis of the important social psychological dimensions of urban life that are often overlooked

* Supplies a comprehensive description of the 19th-century theoretical roots of urban sociology

* Enables readers to see concretely how theories are "applied" to illuminate the operation of a range of urban cultures, processes, and structures

* Considers a number of topics that are likely to resonate with readers personally, such as alternative approaches to the concept of "community," the daily organization of city life, and the phenomenon of urban tolerance of diversity

* Includes an up-to-date, new chapter on the arts and urban life
