Urban Policies, Practices, and Perceptions
Sustaining Cities spotlights metropolitan and smaller centers in light of globalization and its aftermaths to discover what has happened to them in the wake of the global economic recession. Its nine essays look at such diverse topics as globalization and agriculture, public policies in modern cities, and corporate support in urban areas. Contributors examine how urban planners, architects, novelists, and filmmakers tap the unique and complex character of cities in response to economic, environmental, social, and political changes.
