International handbook of urban policy. Volume 3, Issues in the developing world

This important Handbook reveals that most urban growth takes place in the less developed world and much of it represents over-urbanization - i.e. urbanization in which most migrants cannot effectively compete for employment, cannot find adequate shelter and do not have the means to feed themselves properly. Yet, compared to rural poverty, urban poverty is widely regarded as the lesser of the two evils. H.S Geyer and his contributors highlight the enormous challenges posed by urbanization to decision makers at all levels of government. This final volume, in a series of three original reference.

  • "Intends to provoke a debate for the sake of putting on record arguments that are often wished away by opponents on both sides of current divides. This book also aims to cover themes that would be of interest to a wide readership and would do justice to an international handbook of urban policy."
