Theory of intra-urban structure: Review and synthesis. A cross-cultural perspective

Piotr Korcelli

Geographia Polonica (1975) vol. 31, pp. 99-132

Abstract

The present article 1 has two specific objectives. The first aim is to reduce the multitude of generalizations found in the contemporary literature on intra-urban structure into a set of basic theoretical statements and postulates. The second aim is to demonstrate to what extent individual theories and statements reflect particular social, political and cultural contexts and to show which approaches, and why, may be regarded as of a more or less universal range of applicability.
