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
