9780198078531: Urbanization and Development in Asia: Multidimensional Perspectives

Over the last few decades, globalization has had a visible effect on urbanization and migration patterns across much of Asia. Analyses of migration patterns reveal that some of the largest movements of people in the world actually take place in the form of internal migration within certain regions and countries, as people move from rural areas to booming urban centres. With the help of selected case studies from India, China, Japan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Phillipines, this volume examines the following issues: Why do people move from rural to urban areas? In what ways does globalization affect such movements? What are the synergies between globalization, urbanization, and migration? What are the challenges that come with resettlement, especially for minorities and other less empowered groups? effect on urbanization and migration patterns across much of Asia.

Review:


"[This] edited volume is an interdisciplinary excursion into contemporary issues of migration and development in the rapidly urbanizing regions of Asia. The authors do an excellent job compiling works that address the tremendous socioeconomic and built environment transformations that have occurred on the Asian continent over the past three decades. The editors should be praised for compiling a work that addresses both the breadth and depth of urbanization and development issues in Asia. While clearly a difficult task, the editors succeed in creating a volume that is suitable for upper-division undergraduate and introductory graduate courses in most of the social science disciplines, but particularly those in geography, political science, international development, economics, and public policy." --Journal of Regional Science
