Making sense of the urban experience has long occupied social scientists, but it is a challenge of growing importance as the global urban population continues to grow. Within the context of this increasingly urbanized world, this book shows why and how geography matters in understanding cities and the ways in which people live in them. Engaging directly with some of the key debates in urban studies  and drawing on the insights of contemporary geographical thinking and research, Allan Cochrane brings together theory and real-world examples. Written by a highly experienced and respected scholar and addressing  global and comparative dimensions of urbanization, Why Urban Geographies Matter will be a valuable resource for teachers and students of  urban geography and planning.
