Publication Date - October 2018. 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.
The Urban World is clearly better than competing books. It is the only book appropriate for my Introduction to Urban Studies course. -Cara Robinson, Tennessee State University. Palen presents the material clearly and concisely, and does a nice job of presenting a variety of concepts and competing analytical frameworks.
