Park, R. E & Burgess, E. W. (1967) The City. Suggestions for Investigation of Human Behavior in the Urban Environment. Chicago: University of Chicago Press

“The City, first published in 1925 and reprinted here in its entirety, is a cross-section of concerns of the Chicago urban school during the period of its most intense activity. Park and Burgess realized that ecological and economic factors were converted into a social organization by the traditions and aspirations of city dwellers. In their efforts to achieve objectivity, these sociologists never lost sight of the values that propel human beings.” | More Information
