City Lights

Urban-Suburban Life in the Global Society

Third Edition

E. Barbara Phillips

Now in its third edition, City Lights: Urban-Suburban Life in the Global Society skillfully blends social science perspectives with insights from the visual arts and humanities to provide a comprehensive introduction to cities, suburbs, and post-suburban areas and how they work. It incorporates many helpful pedagogical features, including almost 200 photographs and illustrations, real-life case studies, excerpts from classic works, key terms, and suggestions for further learning. In addition, end-of-chapter projects encourage students to apply what they have learned by participating in research, activism, or other civic pursuits in their own communities. Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition features a global emphasis throughout; updated statistical data; detailed coverage of the Internet's influence on personal, political, and economic relations; discussions of numerous new topics; and much more.
