Building on the success of its first edition, the second edition of the Sustainable Urban Development Reader expands its selection of classic material on sustainable community development.

All sections have a concise editorial introduction that places the selection in context and suggests further reading. Additional sections cover tools for sustainable development, sustainable development internationally, visions of sustainable community and case studies from around the world. The book also includes educational exercises for individuals, university classes, or community groups, and an extensive list of recommended readings.

Sustainable urban development is the frontier of the 21st century....This book is a superb collection of classic essays and contemporary work. Highly recommended!.
–David W. Orr, Oberlin College
This is the book that scholars and students interested in connecting sustainability and city and regional planning have been waiting for. The authors' presentation of important theoretical ideas and current applications artfully unites two fields that have much to learn from each other.
–Katherine Cushing, San Jose State University
A discerning selection of key ideas and strong editorial support on key urban sustainability themes, combined with case-study and inspirational student exercise sections will ensure this book will form a key text in my program.
–Colin Elliot, Heriot-Watt University
The volume may be used as a textbook, but it doesn't feel like one.
