Summary
  • The sprawling cities of the developing world are vibrant hubs of economic growth, but they are also increasingly ecologically unsustainable and, for ordinary citizens, increasingly unlivable. This book explores the linked issues of livelihood and ecological sustainability in major cities of the developing and transitional world. Writing from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, the authors of these chapters build a picture of how cities might be turned in the direction of increased livability. -- From back cover
