ABSTRACTS DUE 1/22/07

A recent article in London's Financial Times (FT) warned its
market-minded readers that the "plight of La Paz provides an
illustration of how a city's unchecked growth can threaten
stability."* The article went on to detail how El Alto, a "slum" city
of 1 million located on a plateau above the Bolivian capital, disrupts
business as usual not just with by now familiar complaints of
"pot-holed roads, belching minibuses, street vendors and packs of
stray dogs," but the radical spatial praxis of its inhabitants.
