Drawing on the contributions of economists and geographers, of cultural, technological, and social historians, Sir Peter Hall examines twenty-one cities at their greatest moments. Hall describes the achievements of these golden ages and outlines the precise combinations of forces - both universal and local - that led to each city's belle epoque. 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( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 539 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
Great planning disasters by Peter Hall( Book )

17 editions published between 1980 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this "pathology of planning," Peter Hall briskly recounts the histories of five great planning disasters and two near-disasters and analyzes the decisions of the professional bureaucrats, community activists, and politicians involved in the planning process. He draws on an eclectic body of theory from political science, economics, ethics, and long-range future forecasting to suggest ways to forestall such grand mistakes in the future. For this edition, Hall has added a special introduction in which he reflects further on the sequels to these cautionary tales and on the moral planners and citizens should draw from them."--Publisher's description
