The Cities of the Global South Reader adopts a fresh and critical approach to the field of urbanization in the developing world, which has seen significant shifts in its thematic and geographic focus since it first began to be defined in the mid-twentieth century. This Reader is thematically structured and pulls together a diverse set of readings from scholars across the world to provide both early conversations as well as new and emerging debates to reflect the diverse trajectories of urbanization processes in the context of the restructured global alignments in the last three decades.
