Despite its curious bow tie shape, Zambia, the former Northern Rhodesia, is more fortunate than most other landlocked countries of Africa, because it has profited from the extraction of one major mineral resource, copper. A lower middle income country with only six million inhabitants and a per capita GNP of $ 580 (1983), it has closer economic parallels with southern Africa than in most of the countries with southern Africa than in most of the countries with the north. Its modest economic and considerable demographic growth has provoked changes in the spatial patterns of population and settlement, especially rapid urbanization with all its numerous attendant problems, such as those of housing, employment and the provisions of facilities and amenities.
This study was taken up against an appeal of Dr. V.V. Giri, the then President of India, to help Zambia in planning and development. For preparing this book, the author carried out field work in Zambia apart from consulting various libraries in the world. The volume should be useful to Africanist scholars, in general, and persons involved in the study of population, demography, human settlements, development, planning urbanization, geography, sociology, history and the like, in particular.
