Dynamics of Urban Development

Paramita Majumdar (Author)
Synopsis Rapid population growth and expansion of jobs and opportunities in the service and informal sector in cities have posed serious challenges, which are great and formidable indeed. Cities pull the rich and poor alike; offer hope, even if illusive, a chance for liberation and a new beginning. During the last two decades the urban scenario has changed enormously and the problems particularly of large cities have acquired new and complex dimensions. This book analyses in depth, the ramifications and planning implications of population growth and geographical expansion in a city where growth is very rapid. Well illustrated with tables, maps and diagrams the book would meet the requirements of urban geographers, city planners, sociologists, researchers and for all those interested in the city.
