Mike Davis Interview
Sarah Rich, 24 May 06

Over at BLDGBLOG, ally Geoff Manaugh has done a two-part interview with Mike Davis, MacArthur fellow and author of several books, including the newly-released Planet of Slums. The two talked about Davis' new book, and a range of other things from biosecurity and bird flu, to Pentacostalism and peri-urbanization.

"Really, the book is just an attempt to critically survey and synthesize the literature on global urban poverty, and to expand on this extraordinarily important report of the United Nations – The Challenge of Slums – which came out a few years ago."
