Media reviews
'This reader will provide a genuinely world-wide perspective on the potential for sustainable cities.' Urban Studies 'The comprehensive analysis successfully persuades the reader of the complex links between a myriad of social, economic and environmental factors, and the wider context of culture, politics and urban governance. This is achieved through harnessing the knowledge and experience of experts from both policy and academic fields, which themselves reflect the international focus of the book... The range, and depth of analysis, of the debates surrounding urban sustainable development in this reader make it an excellent and comprehensive introductory text.' Local Environment '...this reader will provide a genuinely world-wide perspective on the potential for sustainable cities... The author has succeeded in providing an affordable, substantive and up-to-date textbook that can be widely used to give a world perspective on sustainable urban development.' Urban Studies 'The Reader is an impresive collection of papers on a potential, sustainable urban future. It attempts to cover all currently relevant issues and does so successfully... It is recommendable as an informative source of reference for professionals and researchers wanting to widen or supplement their knowledge on sustainable cities.' Housing Studies
