Abstract:

The socio-economic transformation of Poland, especially her quick-paced industrialization following World War II, reinforced previous processes and ge-nerated new ones affecting the spatial structure of towns. The adjustment of the historical spatial structures of towns to modern social and economic requi-rements and the reconstruction and extension of towns contributed to their in-ternal differentiation.

The rapid demographic and spatial developments created new social, eco-nomic, biological, technological and planning problems in towns. To solve those problems in conditions when the urban society is becoming almost equi-valent to society in the general sense of the word, it is indispensable to enhance the range of problems of urban studies.
