Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. The modern city is not only pavement and concrete. Parks, gardens, trees, and other plants are an integral part of the urban environment. Often the focal points of social movements and political interests, green spaces represent far more than simply an effort to balance the man-made with the natural. A city s history with and approach to its parks and gardens reveals much about its workings and the forces acting upon it. Our green spaces offer a unique and valuable window on the history of city life. The essays in Greening the City span over a century of urban history, moving from fin-de-siecle Sofia to green efforts in urban Seattle. The authors present a wide array of cases that speak to global concerns through the local and specific, with topics that include green-space planning in Barcelona and Mexico City, the distinction between public and private nature in Los Angeles, the ecological diversity of West Berlin, and the historical and cultural significance of hybrid spaces designed for sports. The essays collected here will make us think differently about how we study cities, as well as how we live in them.

Critique: This collection brings a unified focus to new research that is expanding the boundaries of our understanding of people's relationship to their built and 'natural' environments. In its own way, each essay raises the same question: What is the nature of nature in the city and how has it changed over the past century? Together, these essays open a new frontier of scholarship. "Greening the City" has the potential of rising to a level of seminal influence.--Harold L. Platt, Loyola University Chicago, author of "Shock Cities: The Environmental Transformation and Reform of Manchester and Chicagos"
