Global Urban Process : Growth of Towns and Cities

"Urbanization, man's best achievement, forming a very small fraction of human history/existence on this earth, has gone through a series of transformations affected by various forces which are assessed in this book. As the time-gap in the succession of different phases of transformation has lessended, the mid-twentieth century marks a watershed in the course of urbanization both in its regional spread as well as in sharpening the `urban divide'. propelled by changes on the political map of the world resulting from decolonization. All these politico-economic changes along with fast changing life-style of people especially in the developing world open up new debates as we consider the urban future."
