From the Publisher
Annotation Cities are often seen as cesspools of dysfunction and squalor--the source of problems, not solutions--but Jeb Brugmann disputes this in his book WELCOME TO THE URBAN REVOLUTION. He argues that the great social movements of the last century took place in cities and were undertaken by urban dwellers, including the overthrow of the shah in Tehran and the end of apartheid in Johannesburg, and he even has some positive things to say about slums. His argument that cities can be settings for the solution of global problems is multidisciplinary--involving sociology, city planning, and economics.
