Project #42678 - reflection on chapter reading

i will attach a file, from that file read chapter 7, 8,&9 (100 words each)  and write 2 phargraphs each on these questions. 
 
 
Chapter 7
The urban political economy perspectives discussed in Chapter 7 were described as "new" in the early 1970s. What exactly was "new" or "alternative" about them in comparison to the urban studies approaches discussed in previous chapters and lecture? 
 
What is "critical" about the "critical urban sociology" approaches discussed in the book and/or lecture? Which makes the most or least sense to you given your own experience?  

Describe the impact of globalization on urban areas in “core” and “periphery” countries. Given the great socio-economic differences between nations as described, for instance, through world-systems theory, does it even make sense to make generalizations about urban life across the globe? In other words, how different or similar are cities of the "developed" and "developing" worlds?

Chapter 8

Some questions you might want to consider from Chapter 8 and this week's lecture: How does urban life impact us psychologically? What types of theories have been developed to explore this topic? Are the stereotypes of the big impersonal city based on actual research? What does your "mental map" look like (feel free to upload and share it with us)? What are some ways individuals identify with, humanize, and find a "sense of place" in the city? 

chapter 9

Some things you might want to  consider in contributing to this chapters discussion on comparative urbanism:  

One phragraph on these questions:
The chapter discuss cultural differences as the source of many differences between cities. Can you think of examples of this across the globe? Where do we see differences in urban living as a function of notable cultural differences?
Chapter 9 includes case studies of Ming Peking and modern Beijing. Compare and contrast the social, economic, political, and cultural dynamics of this city during these different eras.

Can you summarize the symbiotic relationship between urban and rural areas? Do you think this relationship is increasing or decreasing in importance?

one phargraph on these questions:

discuss the role of popular culture reinforcing the urban/rural divide which stereotypically equates urban life with sophistication and rural life with backwardness. Can you think of more examples of TV series, movies, commercials, etc. which highlight this divide?
