            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

            The Devils Henchmen throwing Molotov cocktails at the Epitaph Riders in Christchurchs first gang war. Prime Minister Rob Muldoon surrounded by Black Power members at the Royal Tiger Tavern in Wellington. The Magogs and the Mothers, PEP schemes and P dealers, patches and ridgies, ...colours and class: for five decades gangs have played a pivotal role in New Zealand life. Based on ten years of research among gangs, Patched: The History of Gangs in New Zealand is the first major history of gang life in New Zealand. Jarrod Gilbert traces the story from the bodgies and widgies of the 1950s, through the rise of the Hells Angels and other bikie gangs in the 1960s, the growth of the Mongrel Mob and Black Power in the 1970s and on to shifts in gang activity around drugs and organised crime over the last ten years. Throughout, Gilbert brings us the gang members, the police and the politicians in their own gripping and gritty words. In this violent and sometimes horrifying book, Jarrod Gilbert takes readers for the first time inside a tough but revealing part of New Zealand life.
