What effects have the economic downturn and credit crunch had on efforts to develop more sustainable cities? This groundbreaking book investigates how urban sustainability is being radically rethought—conceptually and politically—in our new economic climate. Prominent scholars analyze changes in key areas of urban planning, including housing, transportation, and the environment, and map out core areas for future research. An important survey of a rapidly changing field, The Future of Sustainable Cities will be essential for students of urban studies, geography, and sociology.
Mark Tewdwr-Jones, University College London

 "Ideas of creating more sustainable cities are not new, but the economic downturn and the need for ongoing austerity measures have placed sustainability at the heart of political debates globally and within nation states. This book offers a fresh debate into the relationship between economic growth and the wider needs of societies and new insights into how places manage and cope with global crises, and questions the dominance of neo-liberal thinking."
