And a must-read for those shaping our cities of the future." --Graham Floater, EGC Director and Principal Research Fellow, London School of Economics "As cities increasingly begin to be seen as solutions rather than problems in the search for sustainable ways of living this book provides a fascinating and stimulating analysis of how Stockholm achieved its status as 'Europe's Greenest City'. The approach taken provides new ways of relating knowledge across disciplinary boundaries and bridging the academic-policy divide to come up with a critical guide to sustainable urban living." --Philip Allmendinger, Head of Department and Professor of Land Economy, Cambridge University "The volume is an illuminating critical analysis of Stockholm's highly-awarded sustainable urban environmental development strategies. The authors present a unified set of theoretically-grounded, keenly-observed and multidisciplinary studies which reveal several lacunae in what is regarded as international best practice. The concluding strategic questions should be considered by urban scholars and practitioners in every city where urban sustainable development is on the agenda." --Jean Hillier, Discipline Leader and Chair, Sustainability and Urban Planning, RMIT University Melbourne "For anyone who wants to understand the critical role of Stockholm in advancing urban sustainability this book is essential reading. With its wide disciplinary coverage and clear historical perspective this collection of essays provides new insights into environmental policy making." --Matthew Gandy, Professor of Geography at University College London and was director of the UCL Urban Laboratory from 2005-2011.

Sustainable Stockholm provides a historical overview of Stockholm?s environmental development, and also discusses a number of cross-disciplinary themes presenting the urban sustainability work behind Stockholm?s unique position, and importantly the question of how well Stockholm?s practices can be exported and transposed to other places and contexts.
By using the case of Stockholm as the pivot of discussions, Sustainable Stockholm investigates the core issues of sustainable urban environmental development and planning, in all their entanglements. The book shows how intersecting fields such as urban planning and architecture, traffic planning, land-use regulation, building, waste management, regional development, water management, infrastructure engineering?together and in combination?have contributed to making Stockholm Europe?s "greenest" city.
