In 2014, Volumes One and Two of the speeches and articles of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales were archived and published by the University of Wales Press. This third volume of the speeches and articles of The Prince of Wales includes a thematic expansion to the section on `Climate Change and Sustainability', accommodating a number of texts that address the interconnected relationship between economic, social and environmental sustainability. As The Prince of Wales marks his seventieth birthday, we note a significant achievement. Over the years, in broader terms, his words and actions have received little publicity, but matters on which The Prince has voiced concern have subsequently risen on the agenda for a great many other thoughtful and well-informed observers. It is hoped that among the merits of this archive is its record of The Prince's contribution, which will allow a fair and balanced assessment of his singularly remarkable contribution.
First published in 1990. The options and probabilities for the future of cities are issues of outstanding contemporary importance, both in the developed and developing worlds. The Living City draws together both current mainstream ideas on their futures and various alternative views to enliven the debate and put forward an agenda for sustainable urban development, emphasizing ideas that question the economic imperatives of that development. Certain aspects of city life - the economy of the city, city-countryside relationships, the city as a cultural centre - are selected for study, as the book looks at the historical past and current experiences to speculate on the likely condition of cities in the future. In addition, the book investigates whether the Third World experience of city life is a separate experience or whether there are lessons to be learnt relating to all cities. The book will appeal to professionals in the surveying, planning and architectural fields, as well as students and academics in Planning, Geography, Economics, Architecture, Development Studies and Sociology and anyone interested in issues concerning the city and the environment.
