About this book

Introduction

This text seeks to defend the achievements of urban sociology and its contribution to evaluating theories of the nature and implications of both capitalism and modernity. The book reviews the history of urban sociology, theories of uneven development, studies of urban inequalities, analyses of urban culture and meaning and urban politics. It argues that urban sociology can be conceived as an extended empirical inquiry into the nature of capitalist modernity.
