Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
Beschreibung"Urban Process and Power" explains the processes of building environments, as well as the how they reflect dominant social, political and economic values and circumstances. Peter Ambrose argues that the changes in the environments during the "neo-liberal" period during the 1970s have increased inequalities, been wasteful of urban resources, and have frequently been self-defeating.
The book compares these processes with those elswhere in Europe, establishing that deregulation has produced adversity, and what is called for is a land development policy which shows a better balance between private, public and voluntary sectors, as well as a more sensitive approach to those who use the environment.
