This book examines how the unprecedented expansion of African cities, which are the products of specific histories, poses serious challenges to equitable service provision and raises contentious claims to the ownership and control of urban spaces.

From the Back Cover:

Contemporary Africa is undergoing a period of unprecedented urban expansion, which is throwing up new challenges in the provision of essential services and contentious questions about ownership of urban spaces. This volume explores the interconnections between these processes, whilst avoiding the tendency to forget that cities are also embedded in deeper historical processes that are integral to the framing of entitlements. Histories of migrancy and the creation of urban 'stranger' communities are fundamental in deciding who lives where and what this means, materially and socially. The gated communities that are springing up are often layered across older forms of urban segregation and/or segmentation. Urban water and food supply, the management of urban land claims, inequality and popular culture are closely examined.

About the Author:

Paul Nugent, Ph.D. (1991), SOAS, is Professor of Comparative African History and Director of the Centre of African Studies at the University of Edinburgh.
