Urban Sociology is a book replete with factual information about cities and hence a book that will repay the general reader as well as the student. But it is a boot that is "flying under false colors," so to speak. By its title it purports to be a sociology of city communities and of the urban way of life. About ninety per cent of the book is concerned with history, economics, political science, education, and social and public welfare, rather than with sociology.
