The Urban Crucible in 247 Pages

Are you aware that there is an abridged edition of Gary Nash's The Urban Crucible?!?

Someone could have told me this 600 pages ago.

That would be the undergraduate version, ma’am. You don’t qualify.

When I saw it in the bookstore today, I panicked a little. I was in charge of ordering the books for an undergrad course and I ordered according to an old order form without realizing that I was buying the abridged edition. Everything is ok — the professor was expecting the abridged version, so all is well.

I suppose it would be curmudgeonly of me to point out that I still have my undergrad copy of The Urban Crucible, and it is definitely unabridged. Kids these days, with the clothes and the music and the slightly shorter versions of academic monographs.
