Geography and Geology
Dr. Harold J. Retallick
The purpose of this study is twofold. In the first place, there is a relative lack of geographical research devoted to the residential sections of cities. This is regretable since residential land-use is predominant in most urban areas. Secondly, there has been very little study of blighted areas by geographers. The majority of the work carried out on this subject has been mainly the product of sociologists and land economists.
