Summary

"This book presents a new and controversial challenge to ideas about sustainability and rejects both economic and environmental orthodoxy. In a nutshell, its message is that the sustainable city can be built by a thousand well-directed small changes. To illustrate this, The Green City draws on diverse practical case material from Australia, Europe, the USA and Asia, and features a photographic essay of 34 colour photographs."--BOOK JACKET.
