Book Description

Originally published between 1969 and 1991, the 12 volumes in this set synthesize international experiences of urban policy making and cover case studies from the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas.

They provide and discuss:

  • Comparative analyses of developing world cities
  • The successive roles played by cities in American history.
  • The problems caused by over-emphasis on public-sector housing.
  • The impact of suburban environments on the quality of life.
  • The land market, including the impact of taxation and subsidisation.
  • Homelessness and housing affordability for people on low incomes.
  • The role technology can play in the planning and management of settlements.


  • Examine the changes in size and form effected by population growth and town planning in the 18th and 19th Centuries.
