Summary

"The Atlas of Shrinking Cities provides the first comprehensive and global overview of this critical urban development of our times: Which cities are shrinking? Where are these cities? What are the processes that underlie shrinkage? In its 160 pages the atlas presents 28 world maps, numerous statistics, and 16 lexical essays that document the global phenomenon of shrinking cities, the causes of which range from demographic developments and migration patterns to shortages of resources, ecocide, and changes in settlement types, 40 case studies of shrinking cities on all the continents illustrate the complex causes and concrete effects of global processes of transformation."--BOOK JACKET.
