A core textbook in urban economics, which originated in the combination of Mills' text, Urban Economics, and Hamilton's urban economics course at Johns Hopkins U. This edition is updated to take account of the 1990 data from the Bureau of the Census and the most recent research results in urban economics. It also adds a new chapter on housing finance. A reasonably solid foundation in microeconomic principles is a prerequisite. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
