This study of Lagos is arranged in two parts. The first part, in Volume I, contains five chapters in which the thesis subject and the study area are introduced, a geographical examination of the study area is presented, the nature of industrialization examined; and, finally, the nature and problems of land acquisition ownership are discussed in detail. In Volume 2 - A theoretical treatment of the thesis problem, involving a review of existing, theories in land use studies and introducing some original concepts on impact analysis as well as a model derived from the Lagos Study. Detailed case studies of each of the 56 land use categories are examined. Conclusions and suggestions arising from the study from the subject of the final chapter. In view of the large amount of supporting material, in maps, tables, figures and photographs, it became necessary to provide a third volume for the reader's convenience. The third volume is, therefore, available for use in conjunction with either of the two volumes of text. The Lagos land use map at the scale of 1:50,000, forms a key document prepared by the author for this study and is provided in a folded form in a special pocket attached to Volume 1. Map 9 is a reduced A4 size of Map 8.
