 Random House | Books | Preserving the World's Great Cities by Anthony M. Tung
For thousands of years prior to this transformation, even the largest cities of the world could be perceived in their totality from a high point near or in the city.
During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as the populations of cities multiplied, the metropolis was simultaneously expanded and transformed in several dimensions.
While cities at various levels of economic development on various continents would undergo such transfigurations to various degrees and at various times, the overall pattern of change in developed nations, and the desired result in all nations, would be similar in many ways.

 GEO-3: GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT OUTLOOK
Increasing levels of urbanization are caused by natural growth of the urban population and migration of the rural population towards cities.
Cities play a major role not only as providers of employment, shelter and services but also as centres of culture, learning and technological development, portals to the rest of the world, industrial centres for the processing of agricultural produce and manufacturing, and places to generate income.
The rapid increase of the world's urban population coupled with the slowing of rural population growth has led to a major redistribution of the population over the past 30 years.

 Our Future: A World of Cities | UNAUSA.org
In its latest report, State of the World's Cities, 2006/7, the agency warns that while city life may hold glamour and excitement for those rich enough to enjoy urban benefits, the unlucky people crowded into shanties and tenements are often worse off than the poor in rural villages.
They see cities as places where epidemic diseases can be attacked most effectively and at lower costs than in the countryside, to the advantage of national populations.
For example, if tuberculosis were conquered or reduced among laborers from the countryside who come to cities to earn money and return home, perhaps to marry; or if prostitutes in a city like Mumbai were better protected against the AIDS virus, their families in rural villages could also be spared devastating illnesses.
