Polarities of structure and change in urban systems : a Canadian example

Urban systems and the diversity of urban development

Auteur :
BOURNE, L.S.

Description :
The paper examines some of the contradictory assertions in the research literature regarding the on-going reorganization of urban systems through a detailed empirical analysis of the changing properties of the Canadian urban system. The analysis begins with a conceptual framework that recognizes alternative logics and trajectories of change in urban systems. The paper demonstrates the diversity and rapidity of change, and the indeterminant and contradictory nature of many of the relationships underlying that change.
