This text provides an overview of the field of urban sociology from the social change, ecological, social structure, cultural, social problems, and social policy perspectives. These perspectives are discussed in the context of past, present, and projected future urban development, and with a concern for the quality of life in cities, suburbs, and metropolitan areas. A sampling of topics includes the origins and early development of cities, neighborhood associations, everyday behavior in public spaces, urban patterns of social stratification, and the impact of urbanization on religion and the family.
