Product description


'Provides policy makers with much-needed information as well as various avenues through which to improve cities for future generations.' Africa At LSE '[A]n excellent review of the challenges facing African cities.' Journal of Retracing Africa 'Africa's Urban Revolution provides a fascinating look, both empirically and theoretically, at an eclectic mix of contemporary urban issues in Africa. Promoting long-term planning that directs and informs African urbanisation is the key message of the authors. This book is a must-read for scholars of the urban South.' Professor Ronnie Donaldson, Stellenbosch University 'Africa's Urban Revolution is a cutting-edge, insightful book that contains important contributions from some of the leading urban researchers in Africa. Informed by theory and practice, the book makes a major statement about future urban possibilities for the African region.' Professor Richard Grant, Director of Urban Studies, University of Miami 'This book provides a powerful antidote to the argument that urbanisation in Africa is not worthy of attention from urban scholars and global policy makers. It does so, in rich detail, over a wide array of crucial themes across the continent's cities. In novel ways and with robust style, the authors offer an invaluable new gold standard text for the growing field of African urban studies.' Garth A. Myers, Distinguished Professor of Urban International Studies, Trinity College, Hartford 'A welcome and vital addition to a burgeoning field.' Africa Research Institute
