Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Researcher Hugh Dickey recently completed a book on The Growth of New Zealand Towns. He sees a need for a revised definition of just what urban means in a New Zealand context, based on the urban functions a town provides. But before detailed research is done into the urban functions of each small to medium town in the country, he wants feedback from those who use smaller towns as their service centres - the farmers. The book has three sections : A historical overview of change in our cities and towns and a general picture of the trens; Illustrated articles on 50 cities and towns form all over the country; An appendix of the research data supporting the book.
Includes bibliographical references.
