Reviews

"Australia and America are car-crazy places on different paths. Australia has much to tell us, if we listen. Green Urbanism Down Under provides invaluable lessons, practical examples, and tangible steps for setting America on a different course. Every planner and polcymaker struggling to make America greener and more sustainable should read this book and borrow liberally from it."
--G.B. Arrington, principal practice leader, PlaceMarking Group
"Beatley and Newman's charming guide to Australians' search for sustainable practice is a revelation, timely in a world anxious about the fate of the planet. This is an exhilarating lesson in the art of optimism. It challenges readers to become first-time visitors to their own neighborhoods, parks and city regions, discovering the many seeds of change all around us."
--Peter Droege, School of Architecture and Built Environment
