"Volume One studies urban Canada in terms of its theoretical and historical foundations and of its future. Thus, a solid base is laid on which to analyse the specific natures of contemporary Canadian cities in this companion work. In Cities of Canada, Volume Two, the author provides exhaustively detailed and up-to-date descriptions of fifteen major centres from St. John's, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia. Each city is examined under the main headings: Historical Development; Economic Base; Urban Growth and Land-Use Patterns; City Centre; and Metropolitan Government and Planning. The text, written in clear and jargon-free prose, is richly supported by over 200 maps, charts, tables, and photoigraphs, and a comprehensive bibliography." (from dj of vol. 2).,
