How does the modern city dehumanize people? That's the question at the heart of this insightful and often humorous examination of cities throughout the world by architectural and urban planner Homa Jahansouzi-Danesh. With protestors in developing countries all saying they are most afraid of losing "dignity," and with cities robbing citizens of their heritage, it's more important than ever to promote the development of cities that safeguard a region's economic, social, and political structures. From New York City, London, Paris, Mexico City, and Tokyo-to Cairo, Beijing, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sao Paulo, Mumbai, Calcutta, Tehran, Shanghai, and other cities throughout the world, the author explores how to reverse the undesirable side effects of globalization. By looking to cities from ancient times to the present, it's possible to sidestep bad choices and restore dignity to the people by promoting community cohesion while embracing tradition with the insights in Hillary Can Belly Dance Too.
