    Hinterlands and Regional Dynamics in the Ancient Southwest is the first volume dedicated to understanding the nature of and changes in regional social autonomy, political hegemony, and organizational complexity across the entire prehistoric American Southwest. M.L. Smith (b), for example, claims that there were cities in Early Historic India before real states arose, whereas others question whether the early Egyptian state was very urbanized. One can define both "city" and "state" in ways that make their co-occurrence tautological, but it is better to frame the matter more broadly.

    Indeed, in our increasingly urbanized world, addressing global poverty and inequality requires a territorial approach. At the same time, attendees also recognized the challenge of creating coherence between various global agreements and goals related to development, poverty alleviation, urbanization, and climate change. For the purposes of this article, ancient Chinese civilization refers to that period of China’s history which began in the early 2nd millennium BCE, when a literate, city-based culture first emerged, to the end of the Han dynasty, in CE. By this time all the essential foundations of Chinese civilization had .

    urbanization. In many periods in history, populations and cities have grown, but the tempo and dimensions of recent years have never been equalled. The many ramifi­ cations of this growth have special significance in their relation to economic and social change. The increase in size of cities is associated with such. moving a country from a situation where % of the population is urbanized to one where % is urbanized-- occurs now often in a span of about 30 years, as opposed to the more leisurely pace of urbanization in today’s developed countries which played out over years. Rapid urbanization is traumatic, requiring massive movement of.

A system of metropolitan areas is a subset of the urban system that focuses on those larger areas that dominate the national economies and societies and their territorial organization. They are large enough to meet the standard measurement criteria employed by statistical agencies (e.g., in the census of any given country) for metropolitan status.

Hinterland, tributary region, either rural or urban or both, that is closely linked economically with a nearby town or city. George G. Chisholm (Handbook of Commercial Geography, ) transcribed the German word hinterland (land in back of), as hinderland, and used it to refer to the backcountry.

The majority of urbanized area residents are suburbanites; core central city residents make up about 30% of the urbanized area population (about 60 million out of million). In the United States, the largest urban area is New York City, with over 8 million people within the city limits and over 19 million in.

The hinterlands were cut-off from the city infrastructure since their restricted market size made it difficult to mobilize large-scale investment.

Operational landscapes: hinterlands of the Capitalocene. Neil Brenner and Nikos Katsikis, “Operational landscapes: hinterlands of the Capitalocene,” AD / Architectural Design, 90, 3 (): In recent decades, the field of urban studies has neglected the question of the hinterland: the city’s complex, changing relations to the diverse non-city landscapes that support urban life.

Many old European cities preserve their historical nucleus, which sometimes includes structures from the classical era (acropolises, forums, theaters, and other structures in Mediterranean cities), but more often they have a medieval center with a castle (citadel), a market square, the radial-ring plan typical of many cities in the medieval.
