Cities are synonymous with modernity and modernisation; hence, sociologists have long sought to understand the unique features of urban society. In the first part of this unit we explore foundational theories of urban sociology in their historical contexts. In the second part we examine how these theories have been challenged both through the structural transformation of established cities and through the emergence of many new types of cities in the rapidly urbanising developing world.
