Description

This volume is a historical study of the social relationships in a relatively small area, a micro-study, and the adaptation to the changing urban environment is drawn out in detail. Using a variation of a modern world system approach, the analysis examines the historical connections and adaptations of the neighbourhood dealing with external forces from the large city, from the region, from the nation and even from the international arena.
