The Concept of Urbanization
The concepts of urbanization was first seen in Mesopotamia about 5000 years ago, and were constantly in development and change during this 5000-year period. With the Industrial Revolution, the concept of urbanization gained extraordinary momentum and continued to develop and change. One of the words left in mind about migration from rural areas to cities is Thomes Moore’s “the sheep ate the people.” 19. As we entered the hundred years, the world’s urban population did not exceed 30 million, which is about one and a half times the current population of Istanbul, but the population of continuously developing cities today is over 2 billion.
This development of urbanization has also given rise to some issues that need to be examined about urbanization. These issues have been examined and presented to us by many researchers in their articles. One of these studies was made by Mustafa Yildirim and was written in the article “urbanization and urbanization within the conceptual framework”. In this article, Mustafa Yıldız’s article will be evaluated in terms of its subject, purpose, method, language, originality and content.
First, the subject of Mustafa Yildiz’s article is about urbanization, as is evident from the title of the article. Yıldız, as stated in his article, contrary to popular belief, considers that socio-economic, cultural and political developments alone are not sufficient to explain the city and urbanization. Yıldız underlines that the city and other elements in urbanization are elements such as adaptation to the city, having the values of the city, feeling a sense of belonging to the city and belonging to the city. “Sociology, urban sociology, urbanization, urbanization and urbanization” 5 different concepts in the form of examining the key words of the article in order to see all the concepts used in the subject of Yıldız’s article. These keywords are the concepts that can be shown among the key elements that make up the article.
In line with the information given above, the purpose of Mustafa Yildirim’s article on urbanization is to explain the concepts of urbanization by taking into consideration the elements mentioned above. Of the three concepts mentioned in his article on this axis, it is observed that Yıldız focuses most on the concept of urbanization.

In the article, the author does not resort to surveys or interviews to support his or her ideas, but he or she manages to support his or her ideas in different ways. The quotations used by the author in explaining the purpose and subject shared with the reader in the introductory section support the ideas given in the article.
Accordingly, when we get to the Reference page of the article, we see a list of references sorted for two and a half pages. The author supported his own ideas by using the research and articles written by many world-renowned researchers and scholars he cited in this list and enabled the reader to adopt these ideas. This method used by the author produced very positive results for the author and enabled the reader to adopt and accept the ideas stated in the article. Each article and author does not use any survey or interview, such as a path in the research section of the method led to make a weak impression, although the above-mentioned reasons taken and examined, the author uses the method that was successful, it can be said that.
Although it is obvious that one of the strengths of the article is the method, another strength of the article is the language used in the article. Although the author’s article is an academic article, it has been a product that anyone who reads, even outside academics and researchers, can understand. It is the language used by the author that allows the article to be understood by everyone. A language far from understandable and complex sentences and words was used throughout the article. This, as mentioned earlier, led to the author’s research being comprehensively articulated and written. The language used by the author can be said to be useful for research and researchers. In this way, the author can enable the wider audience to read and understand his research, and secondly, he can improve his subsequent research with the extensive comments he will receive from a wider audience.

The researcher Mustafa Yildirim, who has produced a successful work in terms of method and language, has also revealed a good job in terms of originality. As mentioned in the earlier parts of the review, there are five different topics in the subject of the article: sociology, urban sociology, urbanization and urbanization. When a short literature survey is conducted on these subjects, it can be seen that they are examined in countless different ways by numerous researchers. For this reason, it may be considered to be a weak work in terms of originality when the work is evaluated by looking at the title only before looking at the content, but when the content is taken into consideration, it is seen that the concepts of urbanization, urbanization and urbanization seen in the title are taken into consideration in a unique way.
The writer of the article than the Oz part in urbanization, urban and generally only kentlilesmen socio-economic, cultural, and political developments evolved and changed in line with, that would be, but that would take over these concepts from a different angle and a different add parameter asserts. It is this element that differentiates the subject of the author and makes it unique that the author adds the three concepts mentioned above, such as belonging to the city, having a sense of belonging, in short, having the values of the city.
As stated in the above parts of the analysis, the strengths of the article are that it is unique, it is written in plain and understandable language and it is understood by everyone and it is a successful method. Although an article is strong in these aspects, it is not possible to be considered successful unless it is supported by good content because what the article should give to the reader is contained within the content. An article written with blank content, no matter how nicely written or how well written, cannot succeed because it does not provide significant information to the reader.
