Product Details


As someone who teaches urban ecology, I think this is a most refreshing addition to the otherwise predictable, traditional academic texts in this field. The combination of diverse case studies with normative directives provides excellent material for postgraduate teaching, where students can be both exposed to a diversity of experiences and provoked to consider their own civic duty, and—more broadly—what constitutes civic duty. I thoroughly look forward to introducing the book to my class this year and imagine I will draw on it for teaching and personal inspiration for years to come.—Pippin Anderson, The Nature of Cities

Civic Ecology is a thoroughly hopeful portrait of the ways that people recover from many kinds of disaster, whether from the sudden devastation of a hurricane to the slow unraveling of economic disinvestment and social fragmentation…. [T]he book offers an inviting introduction to civic ecology for students, an on the ground look at the power of civic ecology practices of policy makers, and a source of inspiration for practitioners and researchers.

Matthew DelSesto, Agriculture and Human Values
