Product Description

Review

'fascinating ... A wonderful book for everyone interested in urban development and environmental limits.'
The Environmentalist

'there is urgent need for exactly the kind of discussion and research into 21st-century demographics and living conditions undertaken by the Urban Age project, a series of conferences part-hosted by the London School of Economics. Living in The Endless City which details and analyses the conferences' findings, is also thoroughly illustrated with striking, evocative, sometimes shocking images of Mumbai, Istanbul and São Paulo.'
The Independent

'delivers the shock and awe of imposing statistics … striking insights and facts”
Rowan Moore, The Observer

'...essential reading...few books do as good a job at articulating the scope of challenges today's cities face.'
The Wall Street Journal

This book is an eye opener for everyone. It is a wake up call to the effects of our wasteful and tasteless society. It is humbling to read about Mumbai and how proud it is of having a clean and safe public toilet. Everyday things we take or demand as necessary are to those that do not, a luxury. More than ever before we are creating cities of slums and this book puts the statistics in such a way, that everyone will understand. This book is well worth the money and time to read and look at the wonderful pictures. It brings to life cities that we hear about but perhaps know very little about. For those of you doing any social science course, this book is a must read, as is the first - the endless city.

A interesting overview about megacities in the 21st century. The economical basis expressed in schematic graphic samples adds a more intriguing analysis of the urban design integrating the urbanistic traditional exposure.

Format: Hardcover
I purchased this book as an auxiliary tool for my dissertation on human geography. Although my exact subject is on quarters within the city and segregation, this amazing book proved to offer some compelling information, stats and up-to-date facts on today's social geography, how we consume and where. Undoubtedly, Deyan Sudjic is a well-known 'guru' in the field, nevertheless the work they edited is absolutely vital to anyone who wishes to have top notch data on today's world's figures. For those who would just like to indulge in a bit of charts, figures and pie charts, 100% recommended: it offers some great thoughts to process later on and it is a vital addition to anybody's general knowledge and culture.
Brilliant!

A big, humane book with breathtaking photographs and thought-provoking text. Mega-cities are our future, and this book goes some way to creating a better understanding of their complexities.
