MEDIA REVIEWS
The Urban World is better than other available texts. I use it because of its comprehensiveness, up-to-date topics and information, and overall clarity of style. It is well balanced in terms of subject matter and provides a perfect overview for a course in urban sociology. * Joyce A. Sween, DePaul University *
This book's forte is making both the political economy approach and the social psychological approach compatible. It is up to date but not trendy. * Robert Ross, Clark University *
The Urban World is noteworthy for the author's writing style. Palen writes in an engaging manner that is readable, accessible to students, and dynamic. * Judith Kelley, Curry College *
