How Cities Work: An Introduction discusses how cities work and compares methods used in understanding the cities.

Organized into five parts, this book begins by elucidating the interactions between city and its region, as well as between people and facilities. Subsequent part explains how the interactions of activities, people, and buildings cause activities to cluster into functional areas and how functional areas interact with each other. The effect of public policies on cities and an economic viewpoint on how cities work are also described.

This book will be valuable to citizens and planners of the cities.
