Reading this book may help dispel some myths and misunderstandings about cities and should give an enhanced appreciation of how the interconnections between increasingly urban lives and their environmental impacts and implications for sustainability fit together. Mike Clark, University of Central Lancashire, UK This is a very timely contribution to the debate around sustainable cities. The authors work to explore interdependent relationships through flows of resources, power and ideologies of sustainable cities in both the developed and developing world. As such the book deserves to be read widely not just by academics, but also by policy makers and practitioners. Professor David Gibbs, University of Hull, UK
