Despite its popular image as a vast and forbidding wilderness at the periphery of civilization, Amazonia has undergone a significant urban transformation since the late 1970s. This book explores these recent events, challenging conventional notions of urbanization and regional development to propose a theory of `disarticulated urbanization.' ' A scholarly book, perhaps too scholarly, since it is primarily concerned with wrestling with theories of urbanization, rather than with its social and environmental realities facing people.' Herbert Girardet, The Ecologist.
