In this work, scholars examine the growth of the largest cities in Africa. It is revealed that the new phase of globalization has reinforced the continent's marginalization, impoverishment, indebtedness, and lack of policy autonomy, rather than leading to economic growth and diversification. Case studies of selected cities (Cairo, Lagos, Johannesburg, Kinshas, Abidijan and Nairobi) reflect a range of experience. Each examines economic and demographic trends; political, social and physical characteristics; and arrangements for planning and management.
