From the Publisher"Cities and Nature is a forceful treatise that uses a socio-historical frame to connect environmentalism with social justice and political action, using graphic and revealing cases studies from around the globe. A must read for those interested in geography, urban sociology, environmental justice, political ecology, city and regional planning, public policy and sustainability." Robert D. Bullard, Dean of the Barbara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs at Texas Southern University, USA.
"This book expertly demonstrates how the urbanization of nature produces socio-ecologically highly uneven outcomes and points at the various ways in which urban natures are politicized. Essential reading for those interested in understanding cities as socio-ecological assemblages and in producing more livable urban futures." Erik Swyngedouw, Professor of Geography, University of Manchester, UK.
"The text admirably conveys the specifically urban nature of urban environments, past and present. This is not an environmental studies book that just happens to focus on cities; to the contrary, the urban itself is robustly conceptualised and explicated." Laura Barraclough, Yale University, USA
