His deep academic mrak in the Chicago School of Sociology help inform and appreciate the variety of urban structures and processes and their effect on the everyday lives of people living in cities.

This text, however, extends the Chicago School perspective by combining its traditions with a social psychological perspective derived from symbolic interaction and also with a macro-level examination of social organization, social change, stratification and power in the urban context, informed by political economy.

This entirely new, 3 rd Edition has a global outlook on city life, and a visual presentation unmatched among books in this genre. Hutter uses symbolic interactionism to examine the social psychology of city life and a political economy perspective to discuss urbanization, uneven development, and social stratification. One of the best urban sociology textbooks on the market. Any professor will say that explaining the link between the microworld of everyday social life in cities and the macroworld of urban social structures, social forces, and political economy is among the toughest teaching tasks, and also among the most important.

Hutter puts this link at the center of this text. While driven by a discussion of city life from a symbolic interactionist perspective, Hutter never loses sight of the urban contexts in which people live.

Along with being well-written and -organized, this textbook succeeds for this reason. Our favorite classics, as well as newer research, are included in this comprehensive examination of the development of the city in history, and its importance to society both in the past and in the future. Once again, Hutter’s latest edition of Experiencing Cities is a rare urban text uniquely focusing on urbanism — how people experience cities and the social psychology of urban life largely from a symbolic interactionist perspective with many topics that students and professors alike will find interesting and engaging.

Experiencing Cities is the only urban sociology text that squarely addresses the lived experience of city dwellers. Writing in the interactionist tradition, Professor Hutter skillfully interweaves a range of contemporary approaches to urban sociology, including social psychology, political economy, and recent cultural analyses of urban life. This new edition contains many updates and includes expanded international content and attention to new empirical work.

Experiencing Cities by Mark Hutter (2011, Paperback)

It wasn’t an easy read compared to my other textbooks. Hutter, a sociology professor from Rowan University, introduces his book with a subject that will surely end up in the history books; the growth of the megacities, which seem to spring up overnight. Whereas in there were only 75 cities with 1, people, there are now over With the growth of the megacities, we also have something called the mega slum.

The reasons behind the growth of the city population is heavily discussed in this book, and the author explores the urban migration from all angles, using more examples than I can count.

One of the more humorous ones is an obscure German doctrine where a serf could become free and equal within a year of moving into a city. Hutter makes this book very attractive to educators by putting special questions in each section, enhancing the discussion. In the first chapter, he suggests drawing an image of your neighborhood, using the sights that you know well.

For another, you imagine that you have an island, and decide what you would do about food, housing, sanitation, sewage, etc. When he suggested the map project, I remembered something about navigating streets in London; the cab drivers memorize hundreds of landmarks, which they use to navigate the winding ancient streets!


Hutter devotes a chapter to the skyscraper, which I am proud to say is an American invention to New York and Chicago in particular. One of the greatest and scariest skyscrapers in the world is the Makkah Hotel in Mecca, a 1,foot tower topped with a mega-clock that makes Big Ben look like a wristwatch. Since it towers a quarter of a mile above the Kaaba, you can say it rivals the accomplishments of the God they worship at the site.

These mega-buildings have an obvious symbolic quality, as a display of wealth for the owner or a source dities pride for the city. Hutter discusses city origins, life, growth, health, and demise.

Some cities have industry, others gain revenue from tourism, some in the USA probably depend on a local college. The change in health has also played fxperiencing role in the increase of cities in China, Arabia, and India, now that infant mortality rates have dropped. It could be the basis for a wonderful documentary series on the Discovery Channel, gutter a series of National Experlencing articles. One person found this helpful. See all 3 reviews.
