Cities of the World: World Regional Urban Development / Edition 4

The third edition features mainly new authors (most teach geography and urban studies in the US) and much revision to reflect the major changes that have occurred since volume 2 was published in 1993, including terrorism, electronic resources, wireless communication, and global business. This edition now has two chapters on Latin America, Central Asia has been added, and the chapters on Europe have been consolidated. The focus continues to be the evolution of cities, settlement patterns, daily life, and urban problems and solutions. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
