May 1988 | 400 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The Metropolis Era, a two volume set, focuses on the social, economic, political and technological determinants of growth and change in the great cities of the world. Volume One examines the paradoxical phenomenon of explosive growth of giant cities in the Third World - and the steady deconcentration of population in more developed countries. A World of Giant Cities looks at cities in the United States, Europe, China, India, South East Asia and Africa.
