Further Details
Abstract Evaluates the potential development of Prague, Czech Republic, through a comparison with four other Central European capitals. The primary anticipated changes in Central Europe's urban system are inferred from morphological analyses of recent social theorists & from comparative sociological analysis. The predictions include the growing role of capital cities as cultural, economic, & social centers for a unified Europe. Prague's future within this frame of reference is gauged, & the city is assessed as strong in the areas of cultural, geographic, economic, & human resource development. Municipal, political, & infrastructural advancement are projected as less strong, while environmental & demographic progress are deemed limited.
