Media reviews
[!] useful textbook for both students and teachers, encompassing an introduction to the topic before touching upon a number of drivers and solutions of urban flood risk in a slightly more advanced manner. [...] This book lends a welcome clarity to a complex, evolving and contemporary subject - and one which will grow in importance throughout the twenty first century. -- Dr Iain White, University of Manchester
