Beyond Urban Bias in Africa

    . . . Beyond Urban Bias is likely to prove a major text on African development . . . for many years to come.
    —Roger C. Riddell, author of Foreign Aid Reconsidered
The essays in this book examine the question of whether African development has historically been weighted in favor of the urban areas. The authors worry that the benefits of urban development are being lost in current adjustment approaches. What is necessary is to harness the financial and human resources of the human city as part of a strategy to ensure greater and more widespread economic development.
