"A wealth of examples drawn from Mexico, Brazil, Indonesia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, India, South Africa, Palestine, Argentina, Bhutan and Myanmar demonstrate how rapid physical and social change has swept away historic urban quarters and the cultural heritage they represent. The mix of concepts, research methods, analysis and practice-based tools is designed for academics and professionals alike. Academics Zetter and Watson have produced a book that is amongst the first to explore the concept of urban sustainability within the context of urban design in the developing world."--BOOK JACKET.
