Even those who have never read a line of Dickens recognize Oliver Twist s cry of the heart, Please, sir, may I have some more? Young Oliver s creator knew all too well the pain of hunger in Oliver Twist, one of his best-loved novels, Dickens portrayed his own youthful experience of Victorian London s unspeakable squalor. A profound social critic, he focused in this novel on the interrelationship of poverty and crime, depicting Oliver s unwilling but inevitable involvement with the scabrous gang of thieves masterminded by the loathsome Fagin and ably abetted by Jack Dawkins, the Artful Dodger.

This is the Spanish edition of "Growing Better Cities". The United Nations predicts that over the next 25 years nearly all population growth will be in the cities of the developing world. At current rates, 60% of the world "s total population will live in cities by 2030. As the cities grow, so does the number of urban poor. Unemployment, hunger, and malnutrition are commonplace.
