African Cities

Alternative Visions of Urban Theory and Practice


As African societies come to live more and more in cities, they do so in ways that challenge prevailing theories and models of urban development. Yet in much of the mainstream and even critical literature, cities in Africa are either ignored or held up as examples of all that can go wrong with urbanism. In this groundbreaking book, Garth Myers argues for a re-visioning of how cities in Africa are discussed and written about. Touching on a diverse range of examples, from Zanzibar to Nairobi, Cape Town to Mogadishu, Kinshasa to Dakar, Myers uses original research and a close reading of works by other scholars, writers, and artists to encourage us to engage with the vibrancy and complexity of African cities.
