Sheds new light on the social, cutural and politico-economic processes underlying the development of major African cities. Combines Africa's colonial legacy, the contrasts between poverty and wealth plus external influences of the global economy with a systematic assessment of national and urban means of production, access to and control over land and shelter along with formal and popular planning activities. Numerous examples and detailed case studies integrate various scales from global to intra-urban, placing them in an analytical framework that will be directly relevant to other Third World regions.
