Although urban morphology as a field of knowledge and research has evolved significantly over recent decades, which is evident in numerous scientific papers, journals and conferences held in this field, there is a lack of books that can be used as a “tool” for students and young researchers who are interested in studying basic features of urban form and urban morphology as the science of urban form. Book Urban morphology: An introduction to the study of the physical form of cities, edited by Vitor Oliveira, presents the first book in the Urban book Series of Oliveira’s work and commitment not only providing a systematic treatment of basic attributes of urban morphology and its general understanding, such as his work presented within the book, but also in revealing teaching methods and introducing to the work and thinking of the most prominent urban morphologies, presented in hi two older books - Teaching Urban Morphology (Oliviera 2018) and J .W. R. Whitehand and the historico-geog...raphical approach to urban morphology (Oliviera, 2019).
