In Our Changing Cities some of the nation's most eminent urban geographers bring their special expertise to bear on the American urban scene. They describe how our cities have evolved, assess their current character, and look ahead to the momentous changes yet to come.
John Fraser Hart is professor of geography at the University of Minnesota. His previous books include The South, The Land That Feeds Us (recipient of the J. B. Jackson Prize from the American Association of Geographers), and, as editor, Our Changing Cities. The Rural Landscape is a thoroughly reworked successor to his earlier book, The Look of the Land, with only a few relict features.
