Product Overview

Combining major urban theories with empirical studies from around the world, the author offers poignant glimpses into urban life, including: the streets of San Francisco as seen through the eyes of a proud garbage collector; the marketplace of Ibadan, as seen by a petty food trader; the curiously empty streets of Fun city, a California retirement community; and Cairo's teeming cemetary, the "City of the Dead," filling with the living. The problems of urban life are shown to be more a result of worldwide forces, rather than the intrinsic nature of cities. This major, new, and timely contribution to the field is a most useful way to introduce urban scholars, planners, and students in a igriety of disciplines to The Humanity of Cities. A complete teachers' manual makes this the perfect text.
