A thoroughly revised edition of the book, Studies in Human Ecology, which had become the standard text and reference in the field. Twenty-four of the original articles have been retained, and 32 new articles (many of them written especially for this volume) have been added.Defining and surveying the ecological approach to the study of human society, this anthology is both a theoretical and an applied work and should be of value not only to scholars and students interested in developing ecological principals, but also to those concerned with applying these principles in research. Part I contains articles by leading sociologists and geographers tracing the history of the field from its beginning in 1921 and reconciling conflicting current conceptions. Part II presents social ecology as a framework for studying the city with respect to ethnicity, neighborhood organization, mental illness, and commuting patterns. Part III offers comparative studies from Latin America, Europe, and Asia. An introduction by the editor provides a critical overview to each part.
