Editorial Reviews

Review

A particular virtue of the texts chosen is that they not only describe Bogota, Lima, and Buenos Aires, but give us a window into the thinking of contemporary observers as to the complex meaning of urban life-as both an avatar of modernization, and as modern dystopia. (Eric Van Young, University of California, San Diego)
