From the Back Cover:

Evolving city intelligences multiply and integrate all city capacities

Dr. Marilyn Hamilton introduces powerful, new models that uncover the fractals within human nature and probe into the very "DNA" that shapes human groupings.
Dr. Don Beck, The Spiral Dynamics Group, Global Center for Human Emergence

How are we evolving the human hive? 60% of humanity now lives in cities. Can city dwellers, like bees who pollinate the fields, act so intelligently, they add value to the planet? How can the clash of differences that separate people, purpose, profits and priorities generate fresh energy to solve 21st century problems? Where do we grow the unexpected connections, that propogate new pathways for community learning and give city leaders and citizens fresh hope?

This book explores a new integral paradigm for cities that answers these questions. It traces the evolution of the city's systematic, strategic, social and systemic intelligences and shows planners, policy makers, citizens, civil society and environmentalists how to sense, experience, relate to and live in the city with an integral consciousness. Exploring the contexts of the city's geography, ecology and lifecycles, Integral City guides the reader on an integrated journey through the city's inner, outer, building and storytelling intelligences. Integral City recalibrates intelligences for life-giving evolution on earth and futures in space.

Chapters explore:
* 4 meta-maps for city wholeness
* 12 appreciative inquiries for evolutionary direction
* Bio-psycho-cultural-social intelligences for city change
* Meshworking strategies for city learning
* Integral Vital Signs Monitors for city wellbeing
* 12 sets of simple rules for complex adaptiveness

Integral City will appeal to anyone interested in creating conditions in which our cities can evolve intelligently beyond the challenges of the 21st century.

Marilyn Hamilton amazes us with the depth and breadth of her vision, her mastery of the integral paradigm, and her pragmatic suggestions for creating cities of the future.
Dr. Nancy Roof, Founding Editor, Kosmos Journal.
