This book, first published in 1979, discusses the concepts, models and techniques used in urban analysis and planning. This study reviews many of the older concepts and models of urban spatial structure, laying the foundations of analysis carried out in the later parts of the book. Topics such as social area analysis, urban economic activity and spatial interaction are considered. This comprehensive study of geography and planning presents a distinctive contribution to the understanding of the nature of the city and its inherent problems.
