Uniting a divided city governance and social exclusion in Johannesburg by Jo Beall( file )
15 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,142 libraries worldwide
For many, Johannesburg resembles the imagined spectre of the urban future. Global anxieties about catastrophic urban explosion, social fracture, environmental degradation, escalating crime and violence, and rampant consumerism alongside grinding poverty, are projected onto this city as a microcosm of things to come. Decision-makers in cities worldwide have attempted to balance harsh fiscal and administrative realities with growing demands for political, economic and social justice. This book investigates pragmatic approaches to urban economic development, service delivery, spatial restructuring, environmental sustainability and institutional reform in Johannesburg. It explores the conditions and processes that are determining the city's transformation into a cosmopolitan metropole and magnet for the continent

A city for all : valuing difference and working with diversity ( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 251 libraries worldwide
"By the turn of the century more than half the world's population will live in urban areas. This rapid pace of urbanization is forcing a rethinking of development priorities, and this book explores some of those initiatives. The book opens with an introduction to the issues of urban development, taking a human development perspective as its central theme. Best practice in sustainable human settlements around the world is explored through an analysis of the nature of diversity in the city, organizational and participative issues, and the question of gender. The contributors look at the experience of living and working in a variety of cities, of creating secure homes and neighbourhoods, of design and the creation of sustainable environments, and the provision of health services and transport. Chapters examine how women, older people, and people with disabilities experience life in the city. Case study material examines the urban experience in countries as diverse as India, Indonesia, Somalia, Peru, Spain and Britain. Throughout, the contributors discuss practical examples of valuing difference and diversity, illustrating the need for an inclusive city - a city for all." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/hol055/97003813.html

Latin American urban development into the twenty first century : towards a renewed perspective on the city by Dennis Rodgers( Book )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 140 libraries worldwide
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

Cities, conflict and state fragility by Jo Beall( Book )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Our research suggests that civic conflict is on the rise, in relative if not absolute terms. This is linked in part to civil wars being in decline and being associated with urbanisation processes that sometimes result in civic conflict. Where civil conflicts spiral into civic ones, they become increasingly urban in character. External intervention in sovereign conflicts can also give rise to new conflicts, particularly in cities, even where the aim is 'post-conflict' reconstruction. Urban politics are critically important to the way social tensions and antagonisms are managed in cities. We identify four ways in which this occurs: i) manipulation of contestation into violent conflict; ii) deferral and/or suppression of contestation; iii) clientelist cooption of the aggrieved; and iv) fostering of generative engagement. Each of these has a distinct impact on state fragility through processes of state erosion, consolidation and transformation. The third and fourth of these approaches offer the best route for avoiding conflict in the medium and long term; but only the last is likely to allow for state transformation and dynamic development
