From the Publisher'A small book for big problems'
Built Environment, 2006
' [A] pithy, attractively produced volume [that] has a lot to say about how to get urbanisation right.'
'The authors...have decades of experience in implementing international cooperation programmes in the urban sector, notable among them some highly innovative efforts to make cities safe and liveable for the urban poor.'
'The chief strength of the book is that it lays out in a straightforward way the evidence suggesting that in a world that is now more than half urban and likely to become increasingly so, poverty-alleviation efforts need to focus on urban settlements.'
'This "introduction to urban development and management" will be an excellent addition to the reference collections of domestic and international development NGOs, as well as CSOs not generally involved in urban development.'
(All above) Development in Practice, Volume 17, Number 3, June 2007
'This is an excellent book, well-written and the authors have can see the big picture of human development. They offer much on planning and on governance.'
