Engaging with positivist rhetoric on climate change, this timely book investigates the dramatic transformation of rural and urban land in Asia, discussing the main ecological deficits affecting Asian cities. Chapters analyse some of the most paradigmatic megaprojects in the global South and their socio-environmental predatory characteristics. Through exposing the limitations of today’s predatory urbanism in the global South, the book argues for the importance of rethinking the resource-urbanization nexus towards socially and environmentally just urbanism.
An invigorating read for urban studies and planning scholars, this will particularly benefit those researching globalization in the global South. It will also aid urban planners reflecting on their practice and looking to improve developments in city making.
