Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 974. Reviews the book, Handbook of contemporary urban life: An examination of urbanization, social organization, and metropolitan politics by David Street (1978). This is an edited volume of 20 chapters on the urban setting. The five sections of the book deal with social organization, social bonds and social groups, control and social problems, communication and politics, and variations in urbanization. The chapters appear to be comprehensive and well referenced. This should be a valuable source and point of entry into sociological research and theory on urbanization.
