— Tom Daniels; H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online
With its rich discussion of philosophical and methodological foundations, its clear presentation, and its engaging narrative style, this book can be read straight through as a complete text, or piecemeal as distinct case studies, or as a source book enhanced by the generous bibliographies closing each chapter.

This book offers a unique, pragmatic approach to questions of sustainable urbanism. By looking at three cities with different histories and politics, Moore allows the reader to see the difference between approaches to sustainability that are prescriptive and ideal, and those that are pragmatic and contextual. The book is timely and should be enormously useful to policy makers, planners and environmentalists. This is a significant contribution in a field that is still trying to find its way.
