Reflections on the theories and models and their application. Note on a possible modelling opportunity in Hong Kong. References. Acknowledgements. Index.


This work is concerned with the understanding of the structure and behaviour of urban and regional systems in developing countries. Professor Chadwick considers not only how such systems change, but also how they might be changed by some form of manipulation. Both these purposes necessarily involve the activity of modelling the systems concerned. This study has been enriched by the author's own experience in Bahrain, Hong Kong, Korea and Saudi Arabia.


For those involved in urban and regional planning, students and practising planners.
