Akadémiai Kiadó, 1998 - History - 287 pages
There are very few books dealing with urban problems within the vast literature on system transformation. At the same time cities are the engines of social changes, they lead to economic restructuring and transboundary integrations. The uniqueness of the book is that it gives a comprehensive view on the region's urban transformation and it presents various aspects of cities from urban economy to housing, from social illnesses to changing urban aesthetics. The Central European urban system is rapidly integrating into the Western European one. Nevertheless, it retains its individuality what reflects its cultural history.The book presents an urban system which is overcoming the transformation crisis of the sociopolitical transition and is becoming one of the most dynamic part of urban Europe.
