Atlas of Cities
$49.50 Hardcover SEE Inside!
More than half the world's population lives in cities, and it is expected to rise to three-quarters by 2050. Presents a one-of-a-kind taxonomy of cities that looks at their origins, development, and future prospects. Each chapter explores a particular city from the foundational cities of Greece and Rome and the networked cities of the Hanseatic League, through the nineteenth-century modernization of Paris and the industrialization of Manchester, to the green and "smart" cities of today. Explores common themes of development, from transport and communication to lifestyle and culture. Using stunning info-graphics, maps, charts, tables, and photos, this book is a comprehensive view of the patterns of production, consumption, generation, and decay of the twenty-first century's defining form, and asks where cities might be going in the future.
