In 2050, over three quarters of the world's population will live in cities. This follow-up to Phaidon's successful The Endless City is a close look at the issues that affect cities, and thus human life across the globe in the twenty-first century. Based on a series of conferences held by the London School of Economics, Living in the Endless City examines Mumbai, Sao Paolo and Istanbul through a series of essays by global scholars and thinkers, photographs illustrating key aspects of life in the three cities, and compellingly presented analytical data.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Fascinating... A wonderful book for everyone interested in urban development and environmental limits."-The Environmentalist

"There is urgent need for exactly the kind of discussion and research into 21st-century demographics and living conditions undertaken by the Urban Age project, a series of conferences part-hosted by the London School of Economics. Living in The Endless City which details and analyses the conferences' findings, is also thoroughly illustrated with striking, evocative, sometimes shocking images of Mumbai, Istanbul and Sao Paulo."-The Independent

"Delivers the shock and awe of imposing statistics... Striking insights and facts."-Rowan Moore, The Observer

"...Essential reading... Few books do as good a job at articulating the scope of challenges today's cities face."-The Wall Street Journal
