Opis: Latin American Urban Development into the Twenty First Century

The 20th century witnessed global processes of urbanization on an unprecedented scale, to the extent that for the first time in human history more than half of the world's population now lives in urban areas. Latin America is the developing world's most urbanized region, with over 75 per cent of its population currently residing in towns and cities. As such, it in many ways arguably constitutes something of an 'urban laboratory'. Although many of its urbanization trends are regionally specific, there also exist clear commonalities with other regions of the world, and much can be learned from the Latin American experience and the future direction it is taking. This volume presents an original collection of studies drawn from a range of disciplines that highlight some of the key issues regarding the changing nature of contemporary urban life in Latin America, and the consequences of its transformation for development more generally. 'Digging deeply and deftly into many of the most complex and urgent issues in urban Latin America - violence, mobility, segregation, participation, drug trade, informality, mobilization - contributors to this sophisticated and highly-informative volume unearth the contours of a new trans-disciplinary research agenda for the new century.' - Javier Auyero, Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long Professor of Latin American Sociology, University of Texas, Austin, USA 'This book brings together an impressive group of talented researchers to revitalise our understanding of urban Latin America. The chapters offer conceptual, empirical and policy analysis of the city, original in approach, comprehensive in scope and impressive in depth. The book should be an essential resource for readers already familiar with the region and those coming to it for the first time.' - Gareth A. Jones, Reader in Urban Geography, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK 'This highly informative book offers readers a unique opportunity to learn about the complexities that characterize Latin America's contemporary urban development from the vantage point of different disciplines and methods, stimulating the researcher's interest to better understand why certain processes happen the way they do and why some interventions work and others do not.' - Nora Lustig, Samuel Z.
