A Social Geography of the City (Harper & Row series in geography) by David Ley

What are the real social processes and situations that lie behind the maps and census data of urban geographers? Ley brings behavioral and humanistic perspectives to the traditional analysis of urban land use and patterns. With the focus on the broad historical contexts and social interactions that define the urban experience and mold its patterns, he examines the geography of everyday life in the city -- with attention to the role of culture and values, informal social groups and urban institutions, and the politics and power relations of the city. Special emphasis is given to the quality of city life, including some provocative explanations for its geographic variations. Illustrated.
