About this book

Urban Settlement and Land Use provides an up-to-date overview of urban geography through the study of both the role of cities in a changing world and the distinctive sections within cities. After considering the historical changes in urbanisation over time, the book provides detailed commentary on: Central Business Districts; Inner Cities; Zone in Transitions; Residential Environments; Edge of City land use; Transport and accessibility within cities; Global Cities; High-tech Cities and Future Cities

The "Access to Geography" series... has hit the right level and style for A-level students as well as lay readers. It offers a general introduction to key topics, case studies, summaries and exercises, and plentiful subheadings and bullet-points help easy navigation. -- TES Teacher 20040618
