This extensively revised and updated fourth edition not only examines the new geographical patterns forming within and between cities, but also investigates the way geographers have sought to make sense of this urban transformation. It is structured into three sections: 'contexts', 'themes' and 'issues' that move students from a foundation in urban geography through its major themes to contemporary and pressing issues. The text critically synthesizes key literatures in the following areas:

the urban world changing approaches to urban geography urban form and structure economy and the city urban politics planning, regeneration and urban policy cities and culture architecture and urban landscapes images of the city experiencing the city housing and residential segregation transport and mobility in cities sustainability and the city.

The fourth edition combines the topicality and accessibility of previous editions with extensive new material, including many new chapters such as the urban world and politics, housing and Residential Segregation, and transport in cities, as well as a wealth of international case studies, extending its range of coverage across the field. This book features enhanced pedagogy including a range of new illustrations and tables, a list of key ideas for each chapter, end of chapter essay questions and project activities, and annotated further reading from books, journals and websites. Written in an engaging, student friendly style, this is an essential read for students and scholars of Urban Geography.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lively and engaging, Urban Geography succeeds in summarising recent trends in the discipline whilst showing the continuing relevance of classic urban theories. The breadth of material covered in this fourth edition is remarkable, covering the gamut of urban cultural, social, economic and political processes. New sections on residential segregation and urban transportation shed light on some of the most pressing urban problems of our time - congestion, homelessness, slum housing - while other chapters have been updated to incorporate new examples and case studies. Urban Geography is surely the most readable and comprehensive introduction to the field currently available." Phil Hubbard, Professor of Urban Studies, University of Kent, UK.

"A truly student-centered text, the fourth edition provides a wealth of material, a critical gaze, a well-illustrated text, detailed references, interesting case studies, annotated bibliographies, and an accessible style. It is the ideal urban geography text: interesting, lively, engaged, dealing with critical issues and stimulating critical thinking. The most accessible, concise and engaging urban geography textbook on the market." John Rennie Short, University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA.
