The continuing tendency to "continentalize" Canadian issueshas been particularly marked in the area of urban studies where UnitedStates-based research findings, methodologies, and attitudes have heldsway. In this book, Goldberg and Mercer demonstrate that the label"North American City" as widely used is inappropriate andmisleading in discussion of the distinctive Canadian urban environment.Examining such elements of the cultural context as mass values, socialand demographic structures, the economy, and political institutions,they reveal salient differences between Canada and the United States.
