9780198741596: The Urban Transformation of the Developing World

More than any other, this moment in history is one of urban transition. Almost half the world's population currently lives in urban settlements, and the last phase of this momentous transformation is now occurring in the less developed countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This edited volume presents regional studies of Third World urbanization, documents of unprecedented change in an ever-changing world. These records of historical, sociological, and demographic import will interest both professional planners and academics in the social sciences who are concerned with the many issues arising from urbanization.

The studies in The Urban Transformation of the Developing World provide thorough investigations and telling comparisons of the major regions now experiencing rapid urbanization. Considerable attention is given throughout to the patterns of global transition, and to the social, political, and economic consequences in store for these regions.
