In this classic work, Max Weber, one of the founders of modern social science and the man characterized by Karl Jaspers as the philosopher of his age, presents one of the most influential theories of urban life and development. For the modern reader, the study provides a perspective that brings greater understanding and dimension to today's urban problems--housing, transportation, overcrowding, and social disorganization.

Weber saw the city as a balanced, self-restoring system of institutions that has played a basic role in the development of Western civilization. He discusses the origins of cities, and proceeds to show how and why this new way of urban life was fully developed.
