Description

Prepared for the World Commission on Twenty-First Century Urbanization Conference in Berlin in July 2000. This book is an entirely new and comprehensive review of the state of world urban development at the millennium and a forecast of the main issues that will dominate urban debates in the next 25 years. It is the most significant book on cities and city planning problems to appear for many years.

Reviews

'A major contribution to the literature of urban planning, bringing together as it does the challenges posed by cities across the world, rather than just one part of it. In doing so it will extend the understanding of many involved in urban development in the developed world and challenge them to see their concerns in the light of the much greater urban problems elsewhere.' - Foresight

'Brings together a number of interesting planning ideas and can serve as a stimulating vehicle for discussion among practitioners… Recommended for planning and social science collections, especially those focused on futuristics.' - Choice
