A model of the pre-capitalist city, proposed by G. Sjöberg (1960). The city centre is occupied by small elite. The lower classes occupy the concentric zone surrounding the centre, and the outcasts are consigned to the outer edges of the city. Abbott (1974) Amer. Soc. Rev. 39, 4 finds that the distribution pattern of socio-economic status in pre-revolutionary Moscow were consistent with Sjöberg's model.
