People, Nature, and Urban PlacesBook - 2006
Green City: People, Nature, and Urban Places looks at eleven cities the world over to see how people and nature have interacted over the course of history, and how people attempt to bring nature into cities. In each of these locations, Soderstrom examines how people have tried to make a connection with nature--how well they've done is both a lesson in hope and, often, a warning. Featuring chapters on Babylon, Provins (France), London and Bloomsbury, Hamilton, Chicago, Irvine, Singapore, Tanga (Tanzania), Kochi (India), Shanghai, and São Paulo, as well as recommendations on what must be done so that everyone has a bit of green to call their own. Also includes photographs and extensive notes.
