Capital Cities and

Urban Sustainability, 

Demographic demands and environmental challenges have raised the importance of sustainable cities to new heights. In this context, the latest edited volume from Elliott School Research Professor Robert W. Orttung comes at a critical time. Using a series of case studies, Capital Cities and Urban Sustainability takes a timely look at policies in key urban issue areas. Addressing sanitation, technology, contracting, and more, the volume features chapters from international scholars on a variety of cross-disciplinary topics. Ultimately, while recognizing cities’ leadership in sustainable practices, the publication also outlines how municipalities can better employ innovative policies to ensure a more sustainable future for all constituencies and across the globe. Don’t miss out on this book critics praise as “unique,” “conceptually stimulating,” and “data rich.” And definitely don’t skip the chapters contributed by Elliott School Professors Linda Yarr and Robert W. Orttung.
