Cities in civilization by Peter Hall( Book )

Hall identifies four distinct expressions of civic innovation: artistic growth, technological progress, the marriage of culture and technology, and solutions to evolving problems. Descriptions of Periclean Athens, Renaissance Florence, Elizabethan London, and nineteenth-century Vienna bring to life those seedbeds of artistic and intellectual creativity. Explorations of Manchester during the Industrial Revolution, of Henry Ford's Detroit, and of Palo Alto at the dawn of the computer age highlight centers of technological advances. Tales of the creation of Los Angeles' movie industry and the birth of the blues and rock 'n' roll in Memphis depict the marriage of culture and technology. Finally, Hall celebrates cities that have been forced to solve problems created by their very size

The polycentric metropolis : learning from mega-city regions in Europe by Peter Hall( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complex challenges of environmental governance depend in no small part on issues of spatial scale, whether the problem being addressed is local environmental health burdens typically associated with urban poverty, urban-regional pollution and resource depletion typically associated with motorization and industrialization, or the global ecological footprints typically associated with affluence. Marcotullio (research fellow, United Nations U. Institute of Advanced Studies, Japan) and McGranaham (director of the Human Settlements Programme at the International Institute for Environment and Development, UK) present 13 papers examining these complexities of scale by addressing trends in the spatial characteristics of urban environmental burdens, socio-economic and political causes and consequences of these trends, and implication for urban environmental policy. Specific topics include Asian-Pacific urban environmental transitions, improving urban water and sanitation services, poverty and environmental health in urban Ghana, dynamics of growth and degenerated peripheralization in urban India, and comparative analysis of urban transport and emerging environmental problems in middle-income countries
