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.
