With 20.1 million inhabitants in 2010, the Metropolitan Area of Mexico City boasted 25% of the country's urban population, and also generated more than a third of the national gross domestic product. Thus, the capital city has become the dominant center of a large megalopolitan region within which, at present, intense functional relationships are developed with other metropolitan areas, cities of smaller dimensions, and rural areas. This book not only highlights the reality of the City in all its dimensions, but also includes a vision of the entire metropolitan area that encompasses municipalities in the states of Mexico and Hidalgo. It also intends to constitute a scientific basis for reflection and urban planning, as an example of general consultation and as a current vision of the metropolitan dynamics of one of the largest cities in the world, with the purpose of identifying what the city means , its progress, its problems and the actions required to correct and channel the negative effects of its continuous growth on a large scale.
