Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alternative Urban Futures challenges existing models of urban development and promotes alternative paradigms, processes, and technologies designed to fulfill human needs and limit the harmful impacts of human activities on the environment.

Book News Annotation:

The vast majority of social and environmental problems in cities are the product of bad planning of infrastructure and economic activities, according to Pinderhughes (urban and environmental studies, San Francisco State U.). She examines problematic approaches to infrastructure in the areas of water, waste, energy, transportation, and food, while simultaneously detailing alternative approaches and technologies that are more ecologically and socially responsible.
