Mike Davis charts the expected global urbanization explosion over the next 30 years and points out that outside China most of the rest of the world's urban growth will be without industrialization or development, rather a 'peverse' urban boom in spite of stagnant or negative urban economic growth.

Throughout my Ph.D. studies in Political Science, I have read a lot of books - some mandatory, many by choice. This book was given to me as a mandatory reading, and still, it is by and far one of the best books I have read that captures - quite vividly - the impacts and limitations of global capitalism. A highly recommended read, even for those whose interests fall outside of 'development' or 'global politics'.
