Abstract : This book, which brings together and adapts material from six of Greenwood's previously published articles, has three stated objectives: (1) to present a fairly detailed description of the post-World War II behavior of selected variables that are central to an understanding of the evolution of urban size and composition in the United States; (2) to develop and empirically test models of both metropolitan growth and intrametropolitan location--models of both metropolitan growth and intrametropolitan location--models that are aimed at explaining the observed behavior of many of the variables described herein; and (3) to provide, in the context of the descriptive chapters, a good deal of carefully composed data that other students of urban processes and policies might find useful in their work.
