Editorial Reviews


Rainforest Cities provides the first comprehensive analysis of the varied and volatile settlement patterns that characterise the urbanisation process in the Amazon.... a valuable contribution to regional development and environmental studies.

(David Hyndman, University of Queensland Anthropological Forum)


Brings into focus the entire urban dimension of environmental change in Amazonia. Read the book and you will find it enlarges your understanding of the world's last great rainforest frontier. It presents an impressive rethinking of conventional analyses of social change and regional development throughout Amazonia. A splendid publication.

(Norman Myers, author of The Primary Source: Tropical Forests and Our Future)

Haven't been to the Amazon Basin since the early 60s, so great to study how the area is developing, and how the indigenous population is advancing.. Plan to return soon and do some writing and photography...
