City futures : confronting the crisis of urban development

Author: E A Pieterse
Publisher: London ; New York : Zed Books ; Capetown, South Africa : UCT Press, ©2008.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This work is an attack on the current consensus on how to deal with the problems of mass urbanization, such as slums and poverty. Pieterse argues that the current 'shelter for all' and 'urban good governance' policies treat only the symptoms, not the causes of the problem, and calls for a reinvigoration of civil society.
