Abstract

San Diego: An Introduction to the Region, Fourth Edition Philip R. Pryde, Editor San Diego, Sunset Publications/Pearson Custom Publishing, 2004 Reviewed by CARLOS TOVARES California State University, Northridge SAN DIEGO HAS OCCUPIED a fascinating and complex place in the U.S. urban system. It has been the least typical U.S.-Mexican border city, and within California it has been perceived as a fundamentally different form of urbanism than Los Angeles. More recently, San Diego has been increasingly implicated in broader processes of economic restructuring and has seen its economy and population continue to grow. San Diego is California's second-largest city, but the population of the metropolitan statistical area is less than half the size of the San Francisco CMSA. Since 1976, San Diego: An Introduction to the Region has served as a significant resource for people interested in the geography and history of the region. After 12 years, the fourth edition of the book was published in 2004. The new edition includes updated population data using the 2000 census, new photos and illustrations, revised chapter bibliographies, and a new chapter specifically on environmental preservation. The editor of San Diego, Philip Pryde, is an emeritus professor at San Diego State University.
