Cities that don't cost the Earth offers a review of why we need to build sustainable cities and looks at ways of doing so. The task ahead is not just to build new cities but also to adapt existing ones. Links are made with the original idea of the garden city and, through a conversation with the reincarnated Ebenezer Howard, this prototype for a sustainable city is updated. The book will appeal to students and professionals in planning, architecture and other environmental subjects, as well as readers with a general interest in this topical issue.
