Experiencing Cities is an introduction to urban sociology based heavily on microsociology and symbolic interaction theory-emphasizing the way people experience the urban world in their everyday lives, interact with one another, and create meaning from the physical and human environments of their cities. Examines the effects of urbanization, urban growth, and urban transition on city dwellers. Utilizes both micro- and macro-level perspectives, but relies heavily on symbolic interactionism to explore the way city dwellers interact with each other and interpret their urban worlds. Each chapter integrates both a social psychological micro-level perspective with a political economy macro-level perspective. This text has an i nterdisciplinary focus. Current events topics are integrated into sociological examination of city life throughout the text.

Mark Hutter is a professor of sociology at Rowan University and has served as coordinator of the Bantivoglio Honors Program. He teaches and has an active and ongoing research agenda in both urban studies and family sociology and has extensively published and presented papers in these areas. I have a very favorable overall impression of this material.
To my mind, this is the strongest of the urban sociology texts available. The scope of information covered is considerable, and yet remains comprehensive and organized. The synthesis of interactionism and political economy seems the right way to go.
