Spring. 3 credits.


Surveys theories on the existence, size, location, and functioning of cities and their metropolitan areas in rich and poor regions of the world. Considers orthodox/conservative treatments as well as critical/left-wing perspectives of planners, geographers, economists, sociologists, and political economists.
