This book provides a research based and critical view of urban planning cultures in Sub-Saharan Africa during the colonial and post-colonial periods and identifies these influences on planning practices. It looks at planning as being strongly rooted in a particular culture based on the different planning systems, institutional arrangements, prevailing urban paradigms, legal traditions, political practices, and other cultural traits that all come into play.
