Download Free Slums PDF by Alan Mayne Full Book and published by Reaktion Books. This book was released on 2017-08-15 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: More than half of the world’s population now lives in urban areas, and a billion of these urban dwellers reside in neighborhoods of entrenched disadvantage—neighborhoods that are characterized as slums. Slums are often seen as a debilitating and even subversive presence within society. In reality, though, it is public policies that are often at fault, not the people who live in these neighborhoods. In this comprehensive global history, Alan Mayne explores the evolution and meaning of the word “slum,” from its origins in London in the early nineteenth century to its use as a slur against the favela communities in the lead-up to the Rio Olympics in 2016. Mayne shows how the word slum has been extensively used for two hundred years to condemn and disparage poor communities, with the result that these agendas are now indivisible from the word’s essence. He probes beyond the stereotypes of deviance, social disorganization, inertia, and degraded environments to explore the spatial coherence, collective sense of community, and effective social organization of poor and marginalized neighborhoods over the last two centuries. In mounting a case for the word’s elimination from the language of progressive urban social reform, Slums is a must-read book for all those interested in social history and the importance of the world’s vibrant and vital neighborhoods.

Download Free SLUMS OF INDIA PDF by NEELA GANGULY Full Book and published by MJP Publisher. This book was released on 2019-06-10 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Contents: 1. Introduction, 2. Slums of the World and in India, 3. Health Care Delivery In India, 4. Slums in Chennai, 5. Health Care Programmes for the Slum Population of Chennai City 6. Children, Women and Geriatric Care for the Slum Population of Chennai City 7. Conclusion and Suggestions. The inspiration to write this book came from the collection of data for a Need Assessment Study of a local slum near my residence. The buildings in the slum locality, the inhabitants and their livelihood, the availability of infrastructure, both governmental and private, in their vicinity and above all, the requirements and expectations of the population, all helped me undertake this study and thus the outcome of the thesis and this book.Specific reference is made to only 4 divisions from 4 zones from the erstwhile Chennai city before the expansion of 2012. Though expansion would have dispersed the ward and division numbers, the name of the location, its locality and the population remain the same. Therefore, I have simply changed the zone numbers to West, North, South-west and South.All the data pertaining to this study limits to the year 2009. Though this parameter is in fact a shortcoming to the study, the hypotheses and its outcome remain significant to this day. Also the representing sample of 300 compared to the total population of 6,26,271 of the 4 zones put together is sufficient since the sample population and the total population are not spread away from each other.
Download Free Urbanization and Slums PDF by National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Full Book and published by National Academies Press. This book was released on 2018-06-08 with total page 148 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The urban built environment is a prime setting for microbial transmission, because just as cities serve as hubs for migration and international travel, components of the urban built environment serve as hubs that drive the transmission of infectious disease pathogens. The risk of infectious diseases for many people living in slums is further compounded by their poverty and their surrounding physical and social environment, which is often overcrowded, is prone to physical hazards, and lacks adequate or secure housing and basic infrastructure, including water, sanitation, or hygiene services. To examine the role of the urban built environment in the emergence and reemergence of infectious diseases that affect human health, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine planned a public workshop. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
Download Free Megacity Slums PDF by Marie-Caroline Saglio-Yatzimirsky Full Book and published by World Scientific. This book was released on 2013 with total page 465 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book looks at slums and social exclusion in the four major megacities of India and Brazil, and analyzes the interrelationships between urban policies and housing and environmental issues. The challenges posed in Delhi, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro and Suo Paulo have spurred public reformers into action through housing, rehabilitation and conservation programs. Civil society and the inhabitants of these cities have also begun to get involved. On the other hand, one must wonder whether these challenges were partly created by the deficiencies of these very reformers and civil society, be it their lack of intervention (as advocates of government intervention would argue), or the flaws and inadequacies of their actions (as supporters of the free market would suggest). Are policies alleviating or aggravating social exclusion This book explores these questions and more.
Download Free Slums on Screen PDF by Igor Krstic Full Book and published by Edinburgh University Press. This book was released on 2016-04-08 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Near to one billion people call slums their home, making it a reasonable claim to describe our world as a 'planet of slums.' But how has this hard and unyielding way of life been depicted on screen? How have filmmakers engaged historically and across the globe with the social conditions of what is often perceived as the world's most miserable habitats?Combining approaches from cultural, globalisation and film studies, Igor Krstic outlines a transnational history of films that either document or fictionalise the favelas, shantytowns, barrios poulares or chawls of our 'planet of slums', exploring the way accelerated urbanisation has intersected with an increasingly interconnected global film culture. From Jacob Riis' How The Other Half Lives (1890) to Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire (2008), the volume provides a number of close readings of films from different historical periods and regions to outline how contemporary film and media practices relate to their past predeccesors, demonstrating the way various filmmakers, both north and south of the equator, have repeatedly grappled with, rejected or continuously modified documentary and realist modes to convey life in our 'planet of slums'.

Download Free Cities, Slums and Gender in the Global South PDF by Sylvia Chant Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-12-22 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Developing regions are set to account for the vast majority of future urban growth, and women and girls will become the majority inhabitants of these locations in the Global South. This is one of the first books to detail the challenges facing poorer segments of the female population who commonly reside in ‘slums’. It explores the variegated disadvantages of urban poverty and slum-dwelling from a gender perspective. This book revolves around conceptualisation of the ‘gender-urban-slum interface’ which explains key elements to understanding women’s experiences in slum environments. It has a specific focus on the ways in which gender inequalities are can be entrenched but also alleviated. Included is a review of the demographic factors which are increasingly making cities everywhere ‘feminised spaces’, such as increased rural-urban migration among women, demographic ageing, and rising proportions of female-headed households in urban areas. Discussions focus in particular on education, paid and unpaid work, access to land, property and urban services, violence, intra-urban mobility, and political participation and representation. This book will be of use to researchers and professionals concerned with gender and development, urbanisation and rural-urban migration.

Download Free The Politics of Slums in the Global South PDF by Véronique Dupont Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-08-27 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Seeing urban politics from the perspective of those who reside in slums offers an important dimension to the study of urbanism in the global South. Many people living in sub-standard conditions do not have their rights as urban citizens recognised and realise that they cannot rely on formal democratic channels or governance structures. Through in-depth case studies and comparative research, The Politics of Slums in the Global South: Urban Informality in Brazil, India, South Africa and Peru integrates conceptual discussions on urban political dynamics with empirical material from research undertaken in Rio de Janeiro, Delhi, Chennai, Cape Town, Durban and Lima. The chapters engage with the relevant literature and present empirical material on urban governance and cities in the South, housing policy for the urban poor, the politics of knowledge and social mobilisation. Recent theories on urban informality and subaltern urbanism are explored, and the issue of popular participation in public interventions is critically assessed. The book is aimed at a scholarly readership of postgraduate students and researchers in development studies, urban geography, political science, urban sociology and political geography. It is also of great value to urban decision-makers and practitioners.
