Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'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

Booknews
A collection of material prepared for the July 2000 international conference in Berlin to provide background information to the World Commission on 21st-Century Urbanization established by the German government. It analyzes various aspects of the globalization process and projections of how they will impact cities throughout the world over the next quarter century. The report of the conference itself is shorter and more accessible. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
