Publisher's Comments

In a textbook for a course in such fields as geography, economics, sociology, and urban planning, Kim (geography, Ohio U.) and Short (geography and public policy, U. of Maryland-Baltimore) emphasize urban growth and decline, large cities in the national and global economies, and urban economic changes in the era of globalization. They begin with a historical review of mercantile, industrial, and service cities. The final section is devoted to capital cites of developing countries.
