Promotional Information

This book is a very nice presentation of basic urban material. Brueckner has a great talent for taking complex ideas and models and putting them in readily accessible frameworks that capture the key points. Moreover he uses simple examples to illustrate the issues. The material should be accessible to advanced undergraduates and will provide insights for graduate students as well. -- J Vernon Henderson, Eastman Professor of Political Economy and Professor of Economics and Urban Studies, Brown University Jan Brueckner's lucid Lectures on Urban Economics is a rigorous, but non-technical, analysis of the major topics in the field. The lectures survey topics of broad appeal to students, and they provide just enough detail -- clear diagrams and tightly written prose -- to support a definitive analysis. This slim volume has the hallmark of an excellent undergraduate text. -- John Quigley, I. Donald Turner Distinguished Professor and Professor of Economics, University of California, Berkeley
