About the Authors
  • First published in 1993, this book provides an overview of issues and debates in contemporary urban sociology. It reviews critically each of the major theoretical orientations in the field, providing a brief historical introduction to each approach but emphasising the current theoretical debate. Flanagan juxtaposes the approaches of classical urbanism and urban community theory, the urban ecology approach and the postmodern approach and explains their lasting contribution to the field. Adherents of each of these methodologies contribute to debates within the field, making an overview volume all the more necessary.

    • Summary of an important subfield of sociology aimed at second- and third- year undergraduates and sociologists seeking an introduction to the field of urban sociology
    • Assesses the theories and methods sociologists have used to investigate the effects cities have on their inhabitants
    • Each approach discussed is illustrated by a case study
