A very accessible book for those interested in the social and political motives that drive the ever shifting landscape of our cities and environments. The prose is sharp and concise, resulting in a textbook that comes across as impactful yet never overwhelming. The use of charts, graphs, diagrams and other visual support do much to support the text and give a clearer sense of what the author attempts to illustrate. However those looking for a deep read should consider another text which further breaks down the motives of socio-economic and socio-political trends as this seems more like an introductory text that covers the general concepts. Those interested in research paper sources should look to "The New Urban Sociology" by Mark Gottdiener and Ray Hutchison.

Textbook was helpful

The content isn't all that interesting, pretty dry. I was hoping my sociology of urban class would have a different book that was less about termonolgy and more about how people feel about/think about living in the city.

Overall, easy to read and bearable for those weeks when the professor assigns multiple chapters of reading. I like particularly like the flow of the text in terms of tone and organization.
