This ambitious study treats urbanization and urbanism all over the world, and from the earliest times to the present. Professor Southall, a pioneer in the study of African cities, discusses the urban centers of ancient, medieval and modern cities. Drawing on an historical and comparative perspective, he offers a fresh analysis of world urbanization in the contemporary period of globalization. Throughout the book, he emphasizes the enduring paradox of the city, which juxtaposes splendid cultural productions with the poverty and deprivation of the majority.
