East Asia is currently undergoing unprecedented economic, social and political transformation, brought about by rapid urbanization, globalization and the growth of information and communication technologies. The urban challenges that the recent transformation presents are reflected on and examined in this book through city case evidence drawn from the region and beyond. Administrators, professionals and scholars have joined in this consolidated effort to address many of the urban problems familiar to those who work with cities and their rapid growth and indicate the variety of solutions and approaches in the urban agenda. With discussion grouped into three key headings: City Management and Strategy, Finance and Budget Issues, and Land, Poverty and Other Issues, the book shares a wide range of experiences and techniques, as well as different processes and methods of implementation that is a must-have reading for all who are keen on enhancing urban management.
