Rainforest Cities free pdf This is the first comprehensive analysis of urbanization in the Brazilian Amazon. Drawing on comparative household and sectoral survey research, the authors find that the growth of Amazon cities fits no single current theory of urbanization- instead they propose a pluralistic theory of "disarticulated urbanization" to explain the region's varied and volatile settlement patterns.
