Every year tens of millions of people abandon rural areas of the South for life in the city. With education,health care and even safe water in short supply, cities risk becoming sites of violent conflict for future generations. And yet worldMoreEvery year tens of millions of people abandon rural areas of the South for life in the city. With education,health care and even safe water in short supply, cities risk becoming sites of violent conflict for future generations. And yet world governments are doing little to address these demographic shifts. Jeremy Seabrook offers a vivid portrait of the lives of people who migrate from impoverished villages to towns and cities,the changes they face,and the impact these changes have on their psyche and well-being.

Contrasting the attitudes of todays governments with that of Victorian Britain-where the government actively intervened to relieve some of the worst consequences of urban squalor-the book provides a sharp critique of global policies,and an ideal introduction to the impact of urbanization on modern life.
