The modern city is simultaneously many different things. It is an assortment of neighborhoods, it is a workshop with factories and offices, it is a crisscross of transportation arteries, it is a marketplace for the interplay of economic interests, it is an object which several different governments try to understand and control, and it is an astonishing mixture of religious, racial, ethnic, recreational, avocational, professional, educational, medical, political, social, and deviant communities. This urban complex will be studied with a sociological approach.
