"This book is about living patterns of city residents - the way they allocate their time to different activities in the course of a day, the rhythm of these activities around the clock, and the locus of these pursuits in city space. It looks into variations in activity patterns among subsocietal segments in the population, and it eplores postualted antecendent ties these patterns may have with felt needs and preference."--P. vii
