More than simply examining the new geographical patterns forming within cities, this third edition of Urban Geography also investigates the way geographers have sought to make sense of this urban transformation. Tim Hall critically synthesizes key literatures in the following areas:

  • approaches to urban geography
  • economic geography of the city
  • urban policy
  • new urban forms and landscapes
  • impacts of urban change 
  • sustainability and the city.

Hall's revised third edition features enhanced pedagogy including boxed discussion points, end of chapter research questions, and an introductory chapter which outlines the importance of urban geography. Additionally a new concluding chapter encourages students to apply what they have read to their own experiences of cities and helps them to apply these ideas to a dissertation.  An important volume, this revised edition is an essential read for students and scholars of urban geography.
