MetadataShow full item record
The course of urbanization undergoing in Poland after World War II was presented. Individual aspects of the process such as a rise in the number of cities and an increase in the percentage of urban population in the total number of people inhabiting Poland, were discussed. At the same time the process of urbanization was characterized in the context of the industrialization of the country after the War. The land management of Poland in the time after World War II followed due to the development of industry, which means that the urbanization had an industrializing character. Nowadays, it is a common occurrence that such mono-functional industrial centers are declining in the conditions of market economy. The fact that in the last decade of the former century the process of urbanization displayed a different qualitative character deserves a favorable appraisal: there started a process of de-industrialization of cities and a growth in the significance of the services sector.
