    IOS Press 2013; US$ 94.00

    Large housing estates: for some people these three words symbolise all that is wrong in urban planning. Large is wrong, because many people prefer a living surrounding that reflects the human scale. Housing as a single function is wrong, because mixed areas are livelier. And estates are wrong, as these refer to top-down planned areas which the residents... more...

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 39.99

    ? Der Bereich des Wohnens stellt ein Kernelement der öffentlichen Daseinsvorsorge in der europäischen Stadt dar.

  • The Growth Illusionby Richard Douthwaite

    UIT Cambridge Ltd. 1999; US$ 15.74

    The idea that growth is beneficial underlies the economic strategies of all major political parties, but the reality of recent years is that the negative effects of growth have far outweighed any positive ones.
