Product Description

Review

?I welcome the (second edition) of Being Urban and hope it will continue to introduce students to the dynamic character of social interaction in cities and the active role of individuals in constructing their urban social worlds. Karp, Stone, and Yoels light the path, now it is up to us...to explore the way.?-Symbolic Interaction

Book Description

Being Urban examines the dynamic interplay between what theoretical perceptions tell us about urban life and how ordinary people interpret and respond to the actual experience of living in cities.
