The Working Man’s Reward

Oxford University Press

Many Chicago land speculators, tourists, sociologists, city planners, and city reformers imagined their city as a series of concentric circles, radiating outward like ripples from a pebble dropped in water, an image made famous in sociologist Ernest Burgess’s zonal hypothesis (1925). Others offered contrasting views of the city’s expansion, revealing the contested nature of urban growth, especially in the market geography evident in the neglected starfish model of Burgess’s student, Lewis Copeland.

Keywords:   Ernest Burgess, zonal model, urban growth, Chicago School of sociology, urban ecology, market geography, Lewis Copeland, map theory
