Abstract

This paper is a review of "Enhancing Urban Management in East Asia", by Mila Friere and Belinda Yuen (Eds),publish4d by Ashgate.in Aldershot, UK, in 2004. The theme of the book is establish3ed in a well focussed introduction, where Friere points out that East Asia’s urban population is likely to double to more than 1.2 billion people in the next 25 years, and that these new citizens will need decent living and working environments if their lives are be humanly fulfilling rather than degrading and desperate. The book, consisting of 13 papers originally prepared for the World Bank’s Urban & Regional Management Course held at the National University of Singapore in May 2000 and edited by Mila Friere of the World Bank’s Latin American Region and Belinda Yuen, a professor in the Department of Real Estate in the National University of Singapore, explains the World Bank’s strategy to achieve decent living conditions for the developing world’s rapidly expanding urban populations.
