..."Professor Tarver's well-organized volume is widely informative, summarizes the history of urbanization in Africa, is geared to the student and scholar as well as the planner and policy-maker, and includes decades of research on urbanization in a part of the world that needs to be adequately addressed. Tarver's reference book will become known as a major contribution in that direction."-Population
