Book Description

Kevin Archer’s eBook; The City: The Basics (PDF) provides a brief yet compelling overview of the study of cities and city life. The ebook draws on a range of perspectives – political; cultural; economic; and environmental aspects are all considered – to provide a broad comparison of the evolution of cities in the rich Global North and the poorer Global South. Topics covered in the ebook include:

  • urban politics; urban planning; and urban poverty
  • a brief history of cities from ancient times to the post-modern present
  • the environmental impact of urban life and the idea of sustainable cities
  • the differences between “global cities” in the North and “megacities” in the South

Featuring suggestions for further reading; recommended websites and a number of illustrations and maps; this ebook is the ideal starting point for those interested in any aspect of cities or urban studies.

Review

‘The City: The Basics’ approaches the very complex; broad; and interdisciplinary topic of “the city” in a manner and style where students of all levels will learn something new. – Dr. Bernadette Hanlon; Ohio State University; USA
