Urban Development Debates in the New Millennium (Volume III)

K R Gupta (Editor)
Synopsis This collection of essays by academics and practitioners from around the world underscores issues and concerns of sustainable urban development and best practices in terms of theory as well as praxes. Contributors have made an attempt to critically reconcile the hypothetical with the applied in order to arrive at innovative solutions for urban good governance in the context of the steady proliferation of habitats and conurbations all over the world. Their papers more often than not transcend regional specifics to address the common agenda of urban development debates as informed by assorted modernization perspectives in the 21 century. This volume brings together social scientists development consultants and nonprofit professionals so that multipositional theories and multicultural praxes might be reflected in their papers based on empirical research and field-level insights. It is expected that this volume will provoke fresh debates and new ideas that will facilitate theory-building as well formulation of paradigms for good practices and sustainable urban applications. The book would be found highly useful by town planners, municipal administrators, NGOs working in the field of urban development and common readers interested in urban problems and policies. It will be equally valuable for policy makers as well as students, researchers and teachers of urban economics, urban sociology, urban geography and public administration.
