Urbanisation in Contemporary Latin America

WAS £12.99 £6.49

Product description

This volume contains a selection of the papers that have been presented at a series of seminars held in London since 1977 and organised jointly by the Development Planning Unit at University College, the Institute of Latin American Studies, the Architectural Association's Graduate School, and the International Institute for the Environment and Development. The focus of the papers is on urbanisation in Latin America, and the general approach is a structuralist, political-economic one. The papers include a general review of urbanisation in Latin America over the past 2,000 years and a series of case studies of urban problems in various cities and countries. The general conclusion of these studies is that change in Latin America is unlikely to come from liberal-minded governments introducing technical modifications into existing procedures, but from a redistribution of power and resources within countries.
