About this book

Each part focuses on a single environmental issue. Topics range widely, from the role of innovation in urban landscapes to the relationship among technological innovation, public health, and the environment. Each part features an essay by a historian, an essay by a practitioner, and a 'profile of innovation' describing an individual whose work has made a difference.

A fine collection of essays...This book presents for the first time a multidisciplinary approach using history and technological innovation to light a pathway through the environmental maze we have created for ourselves. The idea to include essays from both historians and practitioners is inspired. - Richard Walthers, Green@Work"
