About the Book :

In developing countries the systems of rural settlements are quite different in comparison with urban settlements and the situations available in developed countries. In this book, the main thrust is on analyzing the origin and evolution of rural urban linkages, national settlement system satellite villages, village viability assessment, resettlement schemes along with the regional conditions available in Tanzania, India, Israel, Pakistan, Zambia, Cuba and others. The book has been designed to be acceptable to geographers in particular and the social scientists in general, and hence quantitative cum descriptive approaches have been adopted towards analyzing the spatial concepts of rural settlements. This should serve as a basic text on rural settlements and planning to the specialists, students and general readers alike.
