Urbanization in Tropical Africa: a demographic introduction by Colin Rosser( Book )
26 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 libraries worldwide
The basic point which this discussion attempts to emphasize is that the political perception of urbanization in Tropical Africa tends to be dominated by concern with urban unemployment (and its social and political consequences) as the major, visible and explosive byproduct of the acceleration of rural-urban migration which has been one of the most striking features of the postwar period, and particularly the period since independence. Contents include: (1) definitions of the terms "urban" and "tropical Africa;" (2) the African urban inheritance; (3) Exploding cities in unexploding economies; (4) the rural-urban relationship; (5) the African Urban Experience; (6) the politics of urbanization.

Urbanization in India : an international urbanization survey report to the Ford Foundation by Colin Rosser( Book )
4 editions published between 1972 and 1982 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
After reviewing the urban demographic facts and prospects for India as a whole, this report asks one basic question: Who, in the Indian polity, is responsible for urban government and urban development? As with the other country reports in this series, the main objective is to understand the national perception of the place of urban development in India's development priorities; and to describe, in basic outline at least, the governmental response in urban policy and program. The main theme of this report is urban government and urban administration in India. In relation to this, the following topics are discussed: (1) Urbanization in India: The Demographic Situation Projected; Growth of the Indian Urban Population; (2) The National Planning Response; (3) Center-State Relations in Urban Development; (4) Urban Administration; (5) Implementing Agencies in Urban Areas; (6) Training Programs in Urban Administration; (7) a National Institute of Urban Affairs? [For related documents in this series, see ud 013 731-013 742 and ud 013 744 for surveys of specific countries.

Families in transition : social change, family formation, and kin relationships by Nickie Charles( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
This book addresses the complexity of family change. It draws on evidence from two linked studies, one carried out in the 1960s and the other in the early years of the 21st century, to analyse the specific ways in which family lives have changed and how they have been affected by the major structural and cultural changes of the second half of the twentieth century. The book shows that, while there has undeniably been change, there is a surprising degree of continuity in family practices. It casts doubt on claims that families have been subject to a process of dramatic change and provides an alternative account which is based on careful analysis of empirical data
