Book Description

6 Nov 2003 0415245923 978-0415245920 1st Edition

For the first time Urban Theory and the Urban Experience brings together classic and contemporary approaches to urban research in order to reveal the intellectual origins of urban studies, and the often unacknowledged debt that empirical and theoretical perspectives on the city owe to one another.

Both students and urban scholars will appreciate the critical way in which classical and contemporary debates on the nature of the city are presented. Extensive use is made throughout of documentary, literary and cultural sources to bring the different theoretical perspectives to life. Discussion points introduce and explain key concepts and intellectual histories in a jargon free manner. End of chapter further readings have also been annotated to encourage additional study.

Review

"Probably the best guide to the complex currents of contemporary urban theory currently available." - Stephen Graham, University of Newcastle

'This is, unequivocally, the best urban textbook to have been written in recent years; perhaps, even, the best ever... Parker deserves congratulating for managing to produce such a comprehensive, well-balanced and well pitched overview of contemporary knowledge on the city.' - David B. Clarke, University of Leeds for Progress in Human Geography

Amazon.com: 2.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
2.0 out of 5 stars Its interesting but also kind of awful 3 Oct 2013
By Pub Admin Major - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book has the thoughts and ideas of many great sociological and political thinkers. The biggest issue would be that the material is very dense and takes multiple reads to understand. At the same time it could just be the fact that my professor has to read the book during the class and he is trying to figure it out himself as he teaches each chapter. I'm using this for a US Urban Experience class and we have just finished using this text and are moving on to a much more enjoyable academic read in Jane Jacobs "The Death and Life of Great American Cities".

For all I know the next edition could be amazing and I should of took the class next semester when my college switched to the new edition.
