"This book is a follow-up to "An Urbanizing World: Global Report on Human Settlements" (CH, Apr'97). This new report draws from information and analyses provided by 80 experts around the world, examining issues of urban governance, housing finance, shelter delivery systems, urban infrastructure, disaster recovery, community development, etc. It both quantitatively and qualitatively measures the needs and capacities of these cities and examines issues, trends, and challenges of settlement and urbanization in world regions. The report is based on the latest and most detailed data available and succeeds in accurately examining the opportunities and challenges globalization has created for cities around the world. It examines issues at both micro and macro levels from a sustainable development perspective. Theoretical and practical issues are considered with a clear emphasis on governance and the development of social policies dealing with the unbalanced nature, effects, and benefits of globalization on social groups, cities, countries, and regions. An authoritative source for practitioners as well as academicians dealing with issues of urban development. All levels." --- A. Mahdi, Ohio Wesleyan University in CHOICE
