People, Nature, and Urban PlacesBook - 2006
Examining 11 cities worldwide and concentrating on the intersection of nature and society in the urban environment, this book offers insight into how people have tried and often failed to connect with nature throughout history while retaining a strong optimism for the future. Giving examples for each city, the author weighs the consequences of introducing nature to urban areas and provides recommendations on creating green space in the city.
