13 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and Spanish and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Latin American city today is neither a political center for imposing control over its region nor a commercial and industrial hub linking the countryside to an economic network. It has, according to Richard M. Morse, become a lodestone that draws people to itself willy-nilly. In the 1980s, the poor especially became concentrated in urban areas, where they often lived in degrading or unhealthy conditions, were unemployed or underemployed, and were vulnerable to constant interference from authorities." "Rethinking the Latin American City does not ask how academic disciplines and administrative devices may be applied to urban "problems" but instead admits that cities are out of control - socially, economically, politically, administratively, and culturally - and seeks new paths for adjusting scholarly discourse to the realities of contemporary urban phenomena. The very categories of study must be reformed, according to Morse, on the basis of intentions, voices, and forms of association that may arise from the people." "The book presents responses by seventeen experts from city management, philosophy, architecture, history, and law. Many contributors have been municipal officials or national political officials; others are teachers, researchers, and writers."--Jacket

Squatter citizen : life in the urban third world by Jorge Enrique Hardoy( Book )

20 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The true planners and builders of Third World cities are the poor. They organize, plan and build with no help from professionals. Drawing on their own skills, making the best use of limited resources and forming their own community organizations, they account for most new city housing. But the city, which thrives on their cheap labour, rejects them. Their houses are deemed illegal, because they do not conform to regulations and they are called "squatters", because they cannot afford to buy sites legally. Their right to water, education and healthcare, even to vote, are often denied." Partial contents : Water pollution ; air pollution ; noise pollution ; urban change ; the environment of poverty ; the role of privatization
Environmental problems in an urbanizing world : finding solutions for cities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America by Jorge Enrique Hardoy( Book )

29 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America contain some of the world's most life- and health-threatening human environments. Environment-related diseases and injuries cause millions of preventable deaths each year. In many squatter settlements, children are 40 to 50 times more likely to die before the age of five than they would be in Europe or North America and most such deaths are environment-related. Many cities also cause serious environmental degradation to their surroundings and increasingly contribute to global warming
