Offering a 21st century view of the changing urban scene, the text covers evolving urban patterns and the changing nature of urban life. Combining expert scholarship with a readable style that students appreciate, J. John Palen is one of America'¬"s leading urban sociologists, who travels the world and adds new insights gleaned firsthand to each succeeding edition of his text.

'¬¢ Latest census findings from the United States and Canada, with a focus on changing metro areas. '¬¢ Rebirth of central cities and its causes and consequences. '¬¢ The post-recession future of North American cities. '¬¢ The dramatic changes taking place in the cities of the world'¬"s two largest nations, India and China. '¬¢ The future of urban developments such as smart growth, new urbanism, and the '¬Sgreening'¬ of cities. '¬¢ International urban changes including Dubai'¬"s tallest building and Abu Dhabi'¬"s city of the future. '¬¢ New photos and illustrations, including the U.S. foreclosure crisis and the BP oil disaster '¬¢ Published in paperback at a '¬SBe Kind to Your Students'¬ lower price. The text seeks to continue its clear writing style with strong student appeal. What also hasn'¬"t changed are enduring features such as strong academic content and instructor friendly organization.
