THE BALTIMORE SCHOOL OF URBAN ECOLOGY: SPACE, SCALE AND TIME FOR THE STUDY OF CITIES. J. Morgan Grove et al. Yale University Press, New Haven, 2015. 256 pp. with 57 ills. (9 col.). 25 x 17 cm. LC 2015-932952 ISBN 9780300101133 In English.
Publisher's description: The first "urban century" in history has arrived: a majority of the world's population now resides in cities and their surrounding suburbs. Urban expansion marches on, and the planning and design of future cities requires attention to such diverse issues as human migration, public health, economic restructuring, water supply, climate and sea-level change, and much more. This important book draws on two decades of pioneering social and ecological studies in Baltimore to propose a new way to think about cities and their social, political, and ecological complexity. Readers will gain fresh perspectives on how to study, build, and manage cities in innovative and sustainable ways.
