Due to the high profile of the political situation in South Africa, developments in other countries in the region tend to be overlooked. Yet the area of Southern Africa is one of the most volatile in the Third World. The central aim of this book is to examine the spatial dimensions of contemporary change in the region and to explore the likely future directions of such change.

Urban and Regional Change in Southern Africa brings a new dimension to this subject. The contributors set urban change in Southern Africa within its regional context and contrast the impact that urbanization and political change have had in particular states, linked by common concerns.
