About this book

With accelerating urbanization and growing inter-dependence of rural and urban dwellers on the markets and resources they each offer, rural-urban linkages have become a very important focus, in recent years, for research and policy relating to local and national economic development, poverty relief and governance. The emergence of new livelihoods based on diversified income sources and mobility reflects profound social, cultural and economic transformations, and new forms of resource allocation and use. This volume collects the key contributions in the field, covering the conceptual background, the key issues and the current debates, and locating different approaches in their wider intellectual and historical contexts. It also includes important recent empirical work from all the relevant geographical regions that will be the basis for future thinking.

Twenty-two papers are clearly organized around the principal themes, and accompanied by valuable editorial introductions and a conclusion clearly setting out the issues, the arguments and the evidence. Suggestions for further reading and additional information sources are also included.


Part I: Introduction; * Part II: Rural?Urban Linkages and Livelihood Transformations; * Part III: Policies that Address, Ignore or Misunderstand Rural?Urban Linkages; * Part IV: Mobility and Migration Between Rural and Urban Areas; * Part V: Beyond the City Boundaries: Peri-Urban Areas and Environmental Issues; * Index

Media reviews
Cecilia Tacoli has covered the breadth, and the depth, of this complex field which ought to become so much more important in the globalization debate and its reflections in development practice. This new publication is much needed and highly appreciated, and i? most probably i? it will become a classic source book for researchers and practitioners' Professor H. Detlef Kammeier, Visiting Professor, Brandenburg University of Technology, Germany, and former Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand 'A useful collection illuminating various facets of the rural-urban continuum, migration and settlement issues throughout the developing world. From the choice selection of articles, striking locational policy issue parallels emerge with respect to the environment, water management, size of urban settlement, livelihoods, income differentiation and poverty trends. This Reader will prove to be a handy reference for academics, students and planning practitioners' Deborah Fahy Bryceson, The Policy Practice, UK
