About this book

Tracing the evolution of the field of urban geography from the 1950s to 2000, this broad-ranging account is a practical handbook of intellectual traditions. Consisting of essays from the journal "Urban Geography", it shows the development of the field as it shifted from data-driven social science modelling in the 1960s, to the more critical perspectives of David Harvey in the 1970s, to postmodernism in the 1980s, to feminism and globalization in the 1990s. Edited by two of the most pre-eminent figures in the field of urban geography, this is a fifty year history of urban geography in America as told by its participants. Including coverage of key trends and figures, this book is a necessary reference for all scholars in the field and for graduate students taking introductory courses and preparing for their comprehensive exams.
