About the Book :

This is the third set of volumes in the well known series entitled Concept International Series in Geography. This multi-volume set has a wide coverage under the title Perspectives in Urban Geography. The earlier two sets in the series were : Perspectives in Agricultural Geography and Perspectives in Geomorphology. Traditional studies on aspects of Urban Geography had been concentrating on observational records of developments of towns and cities till the subject came to acquire a behavioural approach recently. What resulted was a new matrix of philosophies, methodologies and their ingenious application to what had been researched through the years. The present set of volumes ventures to make a rigorous survey of the literature on Urban Geography after its reorientation as it were. Each part of the volume on Comparative Urban Research provides some strong indicators of where the field is moving with a sense of theoretical foundation that lends coherence to a variety of urban problems. Most papers gathered here provoke new thinking about the nature of comparative research and bring the reader face to face with its theoretical implications. The first group of papers deal with important scientific aspects and questions of comparative urban and regional research. The second group of papers are those which document national and international research programmes on urban development. Noted geographers from various realms of interest belonging to different areas of the world interact here to impart a unique vigour to the comparative concepts studies.
