Planeta de ciudades

Shlomo Angel

June 2015, Spanish

Published by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy in collaboration with Universidad del Rosario

This book develops a science of global cities to prepare for the coming expansion of the planet’s population and questions the main tenets of the Containment Paradigm. It provides planners and decision makers with the conceptual framework, basic empirical data, and practical agenda necessary for the minimal yet meaningful management of global urban growth.
