Synopsis

The emerging and continuing challenge of cities and urbanization has become a forefront in current global concerns. Professors George Pomeroy's and Gerald Webster's book, Global Perspectives on Urbanization, addresses an expanse of challenges related to poverty and the environment. From Mexico City to Eastern Europe and from the slum dwellers to gentrification, this book offers a global perspective. Drawing from research in both developed and developing world contexts, each chapter provides the reader with viewpoints from recognized global leaders in the field. Empirically well-founded, this study appeals to urbanists and planners, geographers and sociologists, as well as those generally interested in urban studies. Analyzing historical perspectives, the roles of universities and research, globalization, and poverty (among many others), this comprehensive book provides a thoroughly researched wealth of information.
