    The Rise and Fall of Great Cities, Lawton, Richard (editor)
    7 Lawton, Richard (editor) The Rise and Fall of Great Cities
    Belhaven Press 1989 Hardcover with dust jacket used 185 pages, 6 inches by 9 inches tall 
    dust jacket: "The great cities of Europe and North America experienced unparalleled growth in the late nineteenth century and first three quarters of the twentieth century on the basis of mercantile and industrial prosperity. Suddenly, as economic structures and urban functions have changed, the role of the city has dramatically altered, with sometimes painful consequences for urban populations, fabric and economies. Professor Lawton, one of the leading historical geographers of the present day, has brought a group of distinquished scholars to examine the changing nature of the urban fact within a comparative framework. The scope of the book is both historical and contemporary with the lessons for the future kept clearly in view.

    The book opens with a broad analysis of the nature of urbanisation in the West between AD 1800-2000, charting the main forces that have shaped cities in the period. Individual chapters from leading authorities follow the themes through in detail, dealing in turn with urban economies, planning, attitudes to urban life, commercial structures, population, public health, housing, recent extensions of the 'city region' and the future role of cities as hubs of a global information network.

    As both prospect and retrospect, this book provides a timely comment and summary of modern western urbanism which will be required reading for all social scientists and historians concerned with cities."

    Condition: Book is in good condition, the pages are crisp and clean. Binding is tight. Dust jacket has rubbing wear, creases, and wear to the edges and corners.
