Urban and Industrial Environments

During the past several decades, environmental discourse has significantly broadened to include perspectives that connect our understanding of human and natural environments. Environmental questions are increasingly seen as embedded in issues of technology, landscape, and social organization. The Urban and Industrial Environments series addresses the environment in the context of daily life experiences and the evolving structures of industrial activity and urban form, drawing from a wide range of disciplines such as industrial ecology, urban studies, industrial geography urban environmental history, regional planning, and occupational and environmental health services. The series offers views of the complex and contested arena of environmental policymaking, the role of social movements and interest groups in the formation of policy and changes in institutions, and the evolution of industry sectors.
