Development In Practice 'It is a well-edited book that provides positive, encouraging examples of urban development that are peaceful, environmentally sound and improve the dignity and living conditions of urban citizens.' Urban Studies 'This book argues that sustainable urban development is a political process which involves both strategic objectives and enhanced democratic participation.' Aslib Book Guide
