About the product

The sheer number of people living in Latin America's mega-cities is not the only reason for looking at them carefully. Unfortunately, they also demonstrate many of the worst symptoms of the region's underdevelopment: vast areas of shantytowns, huge numbers of poor people, high concentrations of air and water pollution and serious levels of traffic congestion. This book is about the prospects for their future.
