en Limba Engleză Hardback – 02 Aug 2012
This edited volume is an interdisciplinary excursion into contemporary issues of migration and development in the rapidly urbanizing regions of Asia. The authors do an excellent job compiling works that address the tremendous socioeconomic and built environment transformations that have occurred on the Asian continent over the past three decades. The editors should be praised for compiling a work that addresses both the breadth and depth of urbanization anddevelopment issues in Asia. While clearly a difficult task, the editors succeed in creating a volume that is suitable for upper-division undergraduate and introductory graduate courses in most of the social science disciplines, but particularly those in geography, political science, international development,economics, and public policy.
