Urban sociology is the sociological study of social life and human interaction in metropolitan areas. It is a normative discipline of sociology. It is a normative discipline of sociology seeking to study the structures, processes, changes and problems of an urban area and by doing so providing inputs for planning and policy making. Like most areas of sociology, urban sociologists use statistical analysis, observation, social theory, interviews, and other methods to study a range of topics, including migration and demographic trends, economics, poverty, race relations, economic trends, etc. After the industrial revolution, sociologists such as Max Weber, and particularly George Simmel in works such as The Metropolis and Mental Life (1903), focused on the increasing process of urbanization and the effects it had on feelings of social alienation and anonymity. The Chicago school is a major influence in the study of urban sociology. This book provides deep insight into various dimensions of issues relating to the subject. Table of Contents: Origin and Growth of Cities The Process of Urban Development Urban Ecology Urbanization and Industrialization Social Consequences of Urbanization Urban Juvenile Delinquency Urban Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Urban Stratification, Status and Mobility Housing and Slums Urban Planning
