Description - Directors of Urban Change in Asia by Peter J. M. Nas

Bringing together a group of international scholars, Directors of Urban Change in Asia examines the influence of significant individuals who are 'directors' for urban change in an eclectic mix of Asian cities. These directors or change agents are actors who have an elaborate view on urban development and who are in a position to formulate and influence future developments. The 2 main questions addressed are: what do the directors of new urban developments envisage for the future and how do they manage to realise their ideas what do the directors of new urban developments The books discusses how, in the majority of cases, urban change has come about primarily as the result of visionary leaders - on national, regional and local levels. It also makes clear that the less successful cities have tended to lack such leaders.
