Book Description

Typically, cities and nature are perceived as geographic opposites, cities being manufactured social creations, and nature being outside of human construction. Through a historical geography of water in the modern city, Kaika shows that this is not the case. Rather, nature and the modern city are fully intertwined, with cities integrating nature at every level of activity. While her empirical focus is on Athens, she discusses other major cities in the West, including London and New York.

Format:Paperback
even though it's quite short it is such an interesting book, and very personal. a section of it was on the reading list for a geography module but i read the whole book because it is so good. it really compliments Swyngedouw's works on Guayaquil.
