Indeed a 'bold imaginary demonstrating how the myriad of initiatives that are already present might form the basis of a radically different suburban future.'

Exploring Alternative Ways to Live

Sustainable city living on 1/10th of an acre

A book that addresses a central dilemma of the urban age: how to make suburban landscapes sustainable in the face of planetary ecological crisis. The authors argue that degrowth, a planned contraction of overgrown economies, is the most coherent paradigm for suburban renewal.
They depart from the anti-suburban sentiment of much environmentalism to show that existing suburbia can be the centre-ground of transition to a new social dispensation based on the principle of enlightened material and energy restraint.
