All over the world the great cities are in trouble. The problem of how to deal with the large urban concentrations of the modern world has not yet been solved. It is a problem which besets not only the advanced countries, but afflicts all areas with dense populations and consequently large cities. The troubles seem to be particularly severe (if one can particularise) in Japan, India and the U.S.A.; very likely also in China, but that is unknown territory. The worst difficulties occur in areas that have populations of one million or over, rising steadily with the size of the population. No country has really succeeded in getting to grips with the socio-economic or even with the sheer physical problems of catching up with the needs of modern communities of this size.
