Abstract: Paper on the role of urbanization in the political development of Asia. Discusses theories of the relation between urbanization and national development, and contributions of urbanization to political development: (1) transition of power to urban elites and consequent development of nationalism; (2) mediation of social change (i.e., slum and squatter areas ease the rural-urban transition); (3) development of administrative capabilities important for both city administration and national development.
