Four Decades of Living on the Edge in Rio de Janeiro

Janice Perlman

  • The book which this builds on, The Myth of Marginality, is one of the most important books in global urban studies in the past 30 years
  • Includes a Foreword by Fernando Henrique Cardoso, former President of Brazil
  • The author's argument and research is utterly original, and should have a major impact on the debates surrounding global urbanization and megacities
