            Water City offers practical solutions to some of the environmental challenges facing 21stcentury cities as a result of climate change. The dense compact nature of the contemporary city makes it difficult to generate urban resilience to the effects of climate change, particularly ...coastal and pluvial flooding. This book describes a design-led remediation methodology that draws on catchment planning and GIS mapping and analysis to redefine the city as a series of hydrological and ecological systems. Six case studies test the presented methodology, two greenfield and four brownfield sites based in the UK, USA, New Zealand, and China. Each case study is illustrated with GIS maps and perspectives. Specific solutions to the environment problems that will be intensified by climate change are presented. Water City describes adaptation strategies to help practitioners in the urban landscape tackle these issues and make our cities better places to live. This practical guide is a key read for professionals and stakeholders in landscape architecture, urban design, planning, and all those interested in how climate change will affect the future of our cities.

            What Do We Know and What Should We Do About Housing? Is part of a new book series offering short, up-to-date overviews of key issues often misrepresented or simplified in the mainstream media. In this book, Rowland Atkinson and Keith Jacobs, established analysts of housing policy..., claim that what we think we know about the housing crisis is wrong, and encourage readers to see the housing crisis as a result of the 'property machine' - a constellation of interests, actors and institutions made up of banks and developers, landlords, speculative investors, the majority of homeowners and real estate agencies. By taking aim at the 'property machine' and its opposition to the social and everyday needs of the majority of the population, the authors analyse some of the key social and economic forces and the broad range of policies that have shaped and responded to Britain's housing crisis. Exposing the roots of key current problems such as homelessness, the lack of affordable housing, and insecurity in the private rental sector, and linking them to the choices made by successive governments to prioritise the interests of capital above social need. The authors conclude with a series of innovative proposals that they believe would help alleviate the UK's housing crisis; improving conditions and tackling the inequalities that are so starkly expressed in relation to personal housing wealth. Allowing for the establishment of a fairer and more equal society and a more stable economic future. Series Editor: Professor Chris Grey, Royal Holloway, University of London
