              In this book, originally published in 1990, the author presents a general, critical overview of Robert E. Park and the Chicago school of American sociology. Lal concentrates on the contribution that Park and those working within the Chicago school tradition have made to the area ...of urban race and ethnicity, and suggests how the current thinking among sociologists, anthropologists, social historians, and social geographers might usefully be amalgamated with the ongoing tradition originating with Park at Chicago. This book should be of interest to students and teachers of sociology, urban studies and race relations.

              Originally published in 1984. The authors of this study address a number of major themes related to the analysis of public services: the role of public choice theory, the importance of professors and organisations, the value of neo-Marxist theories and the importance of space. Th...ese issues are considered in the context of case studies of school closures, the provision of medical care, the relationships between Federal outlays and presidential politics, the provision of nurseries, demand-making in local government and the fiscal crisis facing many American cities. The subject of public service provision is of great interest not only to political scientists but also to geographers and to sociologists. This book presents a great deal of new thinking and new research from both North America and Britain.

              First published in 1979. Concern about the processes at work in Britain's urban areas, coupled with steep declines in the population projections, led to a review of urban and regional policies in the mid-1970s, with major implications for the new towns as an element of national p...olicy. The various stages and the conclusions of this re-appraisal are discussed, and the new towns' role in the supposed `urban crisis' is analysed. This title will be of interest to students of urban studies and development.

              This book, first published in 1984, recounts the daily life, the politics, religion and leisure pursuits of Jamaicans in working- and middle-class Kingston. The study is based upon the author's observations of life in Selton Town and Vermount, two neighborhoods of Kingston, betwe...en 1971 and 1982. The author analyses the local social conflicts and ideologies, thereby, demonstrating how larger issues of class domination and cultural hegemony pervade neighbourhood life. The study provides a detailed contextual account of the significance of belonging to different classes. It provides a different perspective of Caribbean anthropology combining the techniques of ethnography and political economy.

              Originally published in 1987. The Consumption Theory of Land Rent or CTLR is a comprehensive model of the urban landscape developed by Grant Ian Thrall. Working from the basic idea that the same underlying processes account for the spatial structure of all places, Thrall shows ho...w CTLR can be used as a tool to explain and predict the long-term consequences of policy decisions by governments, such as introducing light rail rapid transit, or parameter changes in the economy, such as a general rise in real income. Thrall's methodology for the analysis of land rent and land use in a significant research accomplishment and a major analytical tool for students and professionals within city planning, regional science, urban geography, and urban economics.
