Reviews

From the reviews:

"Future Cities: Dynamics and Sustainability, is an edited volume that consists of theoretical and analytical articles. … The editors are optimistic that despite all the impacts cities are making on natural processes, cities are not necessarily in conflict with the environment. … the book presents articles with a highly academic focus that should prove useful to students and researchers who are interested in urban metabolism and its sustainability linkages." (Xuemei Bai, Journal of Industrial Ecology, Vol. 7 (2), 2003)
