Over the course of two decades, Urban Economics has achieved a worldwide audience, and has been translated into Chinese, Greek, Russia, and Korean. Like the seven previous editions, this edition provides a clear and concise presentation of the economic forces that:(a) cause the development of cities; (b) determine the spatial form of cities; (c) cause urban economies to grow or shrink; (d) generate urban problems such as poverty, crime, and congestion; (e) make the market for urban housing unique; and (f) shape the tax and spending policies of local government. In addition to developing the basic concepts of urban economics, the book uses economic analysis to evaluate the merits of policies designed to address our most vexing urban problems.

This was agreat text. It is easy to understand. If you are "required" to purchase book for a class, you should do it. It has great references and is written well. Not your typical text.

The book is of good quality, though a little bit expensive with some highlights in it. A little bit slow in delivery, but the book arrived right on time when I need to use it. So all in all, good experience~
Very Good Condition ..

This is a text book. But in fact the teacher does not use it. I almost never use it. And the book is not interesting

I did not care for this product whatsoever. The questions in the book were challenging to answering, when referencing to the text for direction. I am going to have to invest in a tutor for the duration of the semester.
Not supported by pc's with window 8

I was really excited that I could rent the digital version from the kindle store. Since I recently received a laptop with windows 8 for school I thought it would be a great ideal to rent the book for class. Wow one less item to carry around, right well wrong after renting this book I found it will only work on computers that have window 7 or older, I get not supported by windows 8. Sad part i learned this in class Now i have the rental but need to go home to do any reading or homework very disappointed. I think it should be made clear that textbook rentals are not supported on new PC's with window 8
