            The issues of urban sustainability are critical, and more so for cities with already high density where the problems of resource constraints, quality of urban community life, and quality of the physical environment are exacerbated by the sheer intensity of social and economic act...ivities within the usually limited confines of metropolitan boundaries. This Guidebook to Urban Sustainability Indicators presents a comprehensive guide for assessing sustainable urban development. It covers thirteen thematic areas pertaining to sustainability of cities and urban areas, which have direct implications on spatial planning and policies, namely Land, Community, Economy, Transport, Biodiversity, Food, Energy, Climate, Air, Water, Waste, Governance and, Culture, and considers how they interlink with one another. The Guidebook aims to advance the knowledge of sustainable urban development and cities through cross-disciplinary thinking and evaluation. It presents sustainability performance indicators for self-assessment and benchmarking cities, and includes both qualitative and quantitative indicators. It draws on a wide range of international databases such as the World Bank's Environmental Performance Indicators to local databases like the Sustainable Seattle Indicators. In total, over 1,100 indicators for sustainable development were studied and feature in the Guidebook. These indicators are organized into sub-themes or dimensions, each representing an area of focus or principle of sustainability. This book is a must read for those who want to have better understanding of the concept of integrated sustainability of urban development from a holistic perspective, rather than approaching sustainability from a single thematic issue. Scholars and students in Urban Planning, Urban Design, and Sustainability Assessment as well as urban professionals, planners and designers, policy makers and municipal authorities will benefit greatly from the diversity and the depth of each theme presen

            It was interesting what people in the checkout line were buying: it was all comfort food. The man in front of me had eggs, bacon, cigarettes, beer. And here we were buying pink buns. No one was buying sensible emergency rations like baked beans..." "It was just the most wonderful... feeling. A sense of hope, like a weed growing out of a crack. Just sitting in the sun listening to beautiful classical music amidst all the devastation..." Everyone in Christchurch has their own story of the quakes. There are heroic and brave stories related to the events themselves, and also longer narratives of endurance over 18 months of aftershocks. No one will ever forget this year. In The Quake Year acclaimed author Fiona Farrell interviews people trying to live ordinary lives in extraordinary times. Their stories are moving, poignant, revealing and healing. This unique book takes the reader beyond the physical damage straight into the hearts of survivors, in stories that will touch a chord with every reader. Fiona's text is enhanced by beautiful photographs by acclaimed photographer Juliet Nicholas.
