  • Waterstones Contemporary Urban Planning

    Price: £120.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Planning is a highly political activity. It is immersed in politics and inseparable from the law. Urban and regional planning decisions often involve large sums of money, both public and private, with the potential to deliver large benefits to some and losses to others. Contemporary Urban Planning, 11e provides students with an unvarnished and in-depth introduction to the historic, economic, political, legal, ideological, and environmental factors affecting urban planning today, and emphasizes the importance of considering who wins and who loses in planning decision making. The extensively revised and updated 11th edition of this beloved text tackles the most pressing recent issues in urban development | ??including the major turn toward reurbanization, Affordable Housing and the particular housing needs of an aging population, new developments in public transportation planning, policy, and technology, standards for green buildings, the second Obama administration's environmental policy and energy planning, as well as the rapidly growing and critical field of planning for natural catastrophes. Contemporary Urban Planning is an essential resource for students, city planners, and all who are concerned with the nature of contemporary urban development problems.

  • Waterstones Guide to Urban Engineering

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Spotter's guides traditionally focus on the natural world but if we are to understand the modern landscape it is vital to recognise its manmade features. Guide to Urban Engineering provides non-specialist readers with an introduction to the technology that underpins modern life. It is a useful identification tool to the anonymous blocks, unremarkable roads, and often disregarded features of our urban, suburban and rural landscapes. The book is divided into five main areas of infrastructure: Raw materials (including mining, agriculture, waterworks); Power (including electricity grids, power stations, oil and gas extraction and renewable energies); Transport (railways, roads, canals, aviation); Telecommunications (including telephony, radio and television, digital and satellite technology); and Waste (including sewers, industrial waste management, recycling). Each chapter fully explores the various engineering features and structures, detailing what they are, what they do, how they do it, and, most importantly, how to identify them.

  • Waterstones Urban Food Mapping

    Price: £32.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: With cities becoming so vast, so entangled and perhaps so critically unsustainable, there is an urgent need for clarity around the subject of how we feed ourselves as an urban species. Urban food mapping becomes the tool to investigate the spatial relationships, gaps, scales and systems that underlie and generate what, where and how we eat, highlighting current and potential ways to (re)connect with our diet, ourselves and our environments. Richly explored, using over 200 mapping images in 25 selected chapters, this book identifies urban food mapping as a distinct activity and area of research that enables a more nuanced way of understanding the multiple issues facing contemporary urbanism and the manyfold roles food spaces play within it. The authors of this multidisciplinary volume extend their approaches to place making, storytelling, in-depth observation and imagining liveable futures and engagement around food systems, thereby providing a comprehensive picture of our daily food flows and intrastructures. Their images and essays combine theoretical, methodological and practical analysis and applications to examine food through innovative map-making that empowers communities and inspires food planning authorities. This first book to systematise urban food mapping showcases and bridges disciplinary boundaries to make theoretical concepts as well as practical experiences and issues accessible and attractive to a wide audience, from the activist to the academic, the professional and the amateur. It will be of interest to those involved in the all-important work around food cultures, food security, urban agriculture, land rights, environmental planning and design who wish to create a more beautiful, equitable and sustainable urban environment.

  • Waterstones Henri Lefebvre and the Theory of the Production of Space

    Price: £25.00

    4 out of 5 stars

    2 ratings

     

    Description: Shortlisted for the Deutscher Memorial Prize 2023 This book presents an encompassing, detailed and thorough overview and reconstruction of Lefebvre's theory of space and of the urban. Henri Lefebvre belongs to the generation of the great French intellectuals and philosophers, together with his contemporaries Michel Foucault and Jean-Paul Sartre. His theory has experienced a remarkable revival over the last two decades, and is discussed and applied today in many disciplines in humanities and social sciences, particularly in urban studies, geography, urban sociology, urban anthropology, architecture and planning. Lefebvre, together with David Harvey, is one of the leading and most read theoreticians in these fields. This book explains in an accessible way the theoretical and epistemological context of this work in French philosophy and in the German dialectic (Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche), and reconstructs in detail the historical development of its different elements. It also gives an overview on the receptions of Lefebvre and discusses a wide range of applications of this theory in many research fields, such as urban and regional development, urbanization, urbanity, social space, and everyday life.
