This title aims to use social science research to contribute towards solving policy problems raised by the rural to urban land conversion process and by high land prices in particular. Ultimately, this book aims to develop the information useful to public decisions on zoning, taxation, public investments, transport systems, new towns, and so on, as they might affect the cost and quality of the conversion process. This book will be of interest to students of environmental studies.
