The Sustainable Urban Development Reader brings together classic readings from a wide variety of sources to investigate how our cities and towns can become more sustainable. Thirty-eight selections span issues such as land use planning, urban design, transportation, ecological restoration, economic development, resource use and equity planning.

Section introductions outline the major themes, whilst the editors' introductions to the individual writings explain their interest and significance to wider debates.

Additional sections present twenty-four case studies of real-world sustainable urban planning examples, sustainability planning exercises, and further reading. Providing background in theory, practical application, and vision, in a clear, accessible format, The Sustainable Urban Development Reader is an essential resource for students, professionals, and indeed anyone interested in the future of urban environments.
