Green City: People, Nature and Urban Places

greencity.jpgFrom Quill and Quire: We hear so much about "green" these days that the adjective has gotten a little tired. But readers with a taste for books on urban architecture and public planning — and more broadly, the sociology and history of cities — can thank Montreal writer Mary Soderstrom for breathing some exciting new life into the term." CSU Bookstore says: "Examining 11 cities worldwide and concentrating on the intersection of nature and society in the urban environment, this book offers insight into how people have tried and often failed to connect with nature throughout history while retaining a strong optimism for the future. Giving examples for each city, the author weighs the consequences of introducing nature to urban areas and provides recommendations on creating green space in the city." At ::Ballenford and ::Amazon
