American sociologists have had an abiding interest in the causes and consequences of urban phenomena. Afterall, the emergent American metropolis has a certain lure to it, which is no doubt engendered by its marked cultural and social heterogeneity, and fluid spatial and social mobility. Then too, urban problems are highly visible problems; declining and dilapidated areas, poverty "pockets", crime, etc., all command attention from diverse agencies and segments of the public.
