Urbanization in Tropical Africa: a demographic introduction by Colin Rosser( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1975 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The basic point which this discussion attempts to emphasize is that the political perception of urbanization in Tropical Africa tends to be dominated by concern with urban unemployment (and its social and political consequences) as the major, visible and explosive byproduct of the acceleration of rural-urban migration which has been one of the most striking features of the postwar period, and particularly the period since independence. Contents include: (1) definitions of the terms "urban" and "tropical Africa;" (2) the African urban inheritance; (3) Exploding cities in unexploding economies; (4) the rural-urban relationship; (5) the African Urban Experience; (6) the politics of urbanization.

Race and the third world city by Hugh Tinker( Book )

5 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey paper attempts to demonstrate that there is a functional interaction between race and the city. Given the basic features of slums, squatter colonies, rapid immigration, patchy industrialization and chronic unemployment, together with political instability (induced both internally and externally), the author attempts to show that race is the intervening variable in the evolution of the Third World urban plural society and the perpetuation of the ghetto and exclusivism. The following topics are discussed: (1) the evolution of the city; (2) race relations within the city; (3) the colonial legacy; (4) race in the city today; (5) the implications of race for city management; (6) town-planning and race; (7) the future of race in the city; (8) some research suggestions:'tribalism' in the city; consequences of public policy on patterns of settlement; employment and ethnicity; political ideologies and movements.

Urbanization in Venezuela by John P Robin( Book )

7 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and Spanish and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study investigates the effects that the abundance of resources in this country has had on the urban development of the country, upon its pattern of population distribution, and upon the conscious effort of the Venezuelan government to reshape its population pattern by the planning of new urban centers and by the opening of previously undeveloped areas to settlement and industrialization. Included in this study are the following: (1) regional development policy in Venezuela; (2) urban planning in Ciudad Guayana; (3) a study of Caracas; (4) other urban centers; (5) fundacomun; (6) the international agencies in Venezuela; and, (7) resources and people.

Urbanization in Colombia by John P Robin( Book )

5 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and Spanish and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey paper will deal with the form and possible explanations of Colombia's urban diversity; the conscious effort to encourage it which is taking place both in the national government and in the regions and cities themselves; with the international interest in the phenomenon and the supportive efforts which follow; and with the relatively sophisticated (fully in form and substantially in practice) structure of planning and administration for urban and regional development. An attempt is also made to evaluate the contribution which international agencies have made, or can make, in assisting Colombia to meet its problems of urban growth and the urban environment. Sections of this paper discuss: (1) Toward a True Urban Majority; (2) The Depth of Regionalism; (3) The Structure of Government--and the Cities; (4) Colombia's Urban Array; (5) The Action Agencies for Urban and Regional Development; (6) The Depth of Urban Skills; (7) The National Plan for Regional Development; (8) The Flavor of Cities; (9) Metropolitan Government--And Bogata; (10) Planning for Bogota; (11) The Housing Conditions of the Urban Poor; (12) Toward an Urban Reform Law; (13) International Assistance; (14) a Clash of Strategies.

Urbanization in Turkey by Ruşen Keleş( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urbanization is sometimes defined as a process of population concentration that requires both growth in the size of cities and multiplication of their numbers. This demographic approach seems to neglect two other important aspects of urbanization: namely, economic and social. The economic dimension consists of structural change in the productive forces, which include specialization and the division of labor; and the social aspect entails modernization and noneconomic transformations. A suitable definition of urbanization must take all these processes into account. In this report, all aspects will be considered, with an emphasis on objectivity.

Urbanization in Jamaica by James W Trowbridge( Book )

3 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a prolonged period of unplanned expansion and administrative neglect, Kingston is now suffering the social and physical consequences of unattended urbanization. Increasingly Kingston's problems in coping with its rapid urban growth are a deterrent to Jamaica's social and economic advancement, and this calls for greater efforts in organization, research, and training. It suggests that urbanization and its concomitant problems need major attention; this in turn may indicate that an urban planning organization with comprehensive authority for metropolitan and regional planning and development might well be established. It also suggests that research and training capabilities at the University of the West Indies need to be further strengthened to effectively collaborate with the recommended metropolitan planning agency and with existing organizations such as the Urban Development Corporation. In addition, internships with Jamaican urban planning agencies might be provided through new fellowship schemes for recent university graduates before and after degree training aborad. Topics discussed in this paper are: (1) urbanization of Jamaica, (2) urbanization of Kingston, (3) urban conditions in Kingston, (4) urban planning in Jamaica, (5) problems of implementation, and (6) urban research and training needs.
