Planet of Slums - Mike Davis
Call Number: HV4028 .D38 2006 A&T Stacks
ISBN: 1844671607
An exploration of modern-world urbanization cites a concerning rise in slum life that currently accounts for nearly one-fifth of the world's population, arguing that urban populations are disconnected and exempt from the formal world economy and may represent an explosive convergence of ethnic, religious, and political unrest.

What is The Planet of Slums?

From book jacket:

"According to the United Nations, more than one billion people now live in the slums of the cities of the south.  In this brilliant and ambitious book, Mike Davis explores the future of a radically unequal and explosively unstable urban world."
