    The book does not aim to be neutral in its review of different ideas and strategies and is sometimes provocative. It reviews and criticizes the principal ideas relating to development and urbanization drawing on both liberal and Marxist perspectives in an effort to relate urban phenomena to the process of development in an unequal world.

This book provides an intensive and original conceptual and practical discussion of the possibilities for development under capitalism, and will be of interest to.
