Originally published in 1981 as part of the Urbanization in Developing Countries series, Latin American Urbanization presents an in-depth look at a process of social change in an important region of the Third World. In this study, Professors Butterworth and Chance concentrate on the rural-urban migration of the lower classes and the adaptation of migrants to city life. They examine the rural, peasant and proletarian communities from which the migrants have come and to which they often remain loyal even after many years of urban residence. Drawing together in a coherent manner studies from several disciplines such as demographic, sociocultural, economic and political dimensions of urbanization, this book will interest a variety of scholars in the social sciences and the humanities.
