About this title:

Synopsis: For the first time in history, more than half the people of the world live in cities. Comprehending the impact of this widespread urbanization requires an awareness of the complex relationships between cities and natural ecosystems. This innovative book moves beyond the anti-urban lamentations that often dominate today's academic discourse to examine the evolution of cities and to illuminate the roles that humans play in shaping their environments, both natural and constructed. Christopher G. Boone and Ali Modarres argue that understanding the multiple forces of urbanization requires a holistic approach to the interactions of social, cultural, economic, political, and environmental factors. Without casting judgments, "City and Environment" seeks to engage readers in an exploration of cities from a truly global perspective. Throughout, it illuminates the social-ecological systems of cities not as an academic exerciseOCoalthough informing academic audiences is one of its goalsOCobut ultimately to help transform cities into livable and ecologically sustainable environments."

From the Publisher: An introduction to urban environmental issues around the globe

BRAND NEW, City and Environment, Christopher Boone, Ali Modarres, For the first time in history, more than half the world's people live in cities, an extraordinary change in circumstances for human beings and the natural environment. Coming to terms with an urban world requires an understanding of the complex relationships between cities and natural ecosystems. "City" and the "Environment" are not mutually exclusive terms. Facing urban conditions in the 21st century requires an understanding of the interaction between social, cultural, economic, political, and environmental factors. Christopher Boone and Ali Modarres explore the city, its environment, and the role humans play in shaping the meaning and condition of both. In doing so, they engage the reader in an exploratory discourse on the urban environment. Bookseller Inventory # B9781592132836
