"Cities: An Environmental History." Ian Douglas. I.B.Tauris. May 2013. --- There is increasing concern over the unchecked expansion of cities today and the detrimental effect this is having on the planet, as induced climate change and ever increasing demands upon the world’s resources take effect. In this book Ian Douglas aims to tell the story of cities – why they exist, how they have evolved, the problems they have encountered and those they will face as our century progresses.
