While the authors come out clearly against urban bias, one of their main worries is that the benefits, and the necessity, of urban development are being lost in adjustment approaches. What is necessary, they suggest, is to harness the financial and human resources of the human city as part of a strategy to ensure greater and more widespread economic development. This book provides many important - and controversial - conclusions and recommendations. North America: Heinemann
