LIVING CITIES an anthology in urban environmental history10.11.2010 - (idw) Schwedischer Forschungsrat - The Swedish Research Council
The book includes contributions to several branches of contemporary urban environmental history. Together the contributors cover a broad span of subjects, from urban environmental degradation to popular movements, from discourses to rules and regulations, and a wide range of historical subjects, from the medieval to the modern and post-modern city.
Focus is on particular case studies of individual cities or groups of cities from many parts of the world. Thus, the chapters represent eleven case studies that to some degree reflect the present state of academic research. While the individual contributions treat separate aspects of urban environmental history, they all focus on the fields larger themes; forces of urban change, environmental threats, environmental policies, and environmental discourses.
