Third world cities in global perspective : the political economy of uneven urbanization by David A Smith( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This perspective allows Smith to critique the conventional ecological view of the city, not by rejecting traditional analyses out of hand but by reformulating the crucial questions.
