Renewable City: AComprehensive Guide to the Urban Revolution Peter Droege, Wiley, 2007, £26.99 This is an intelligent, wellwritten - and somewhat polemical - take on how to move towards a renewable city, which is a good read for architects because of its strategic approach and its grasp of the planning and policy context. Though the chapter on buildings may be largely familiar, the planning and action guide for local government outlines a useful nuts-and-bolts approach to being a guerilla in the bureaucracy: how to make change happen. The author's academic footholds in Newcastle, Sydney and Beijing mean that the book's reach includes latest practice from many parts of the globe.

Extensive references and webography.
