Description: Top selling professional titles that have enjoyed significant cloth edition sales are now available for the first time in low-priced paperback, through the Wiley Professional Paperback Series.

This new paperback series will regularly publish some of our most popular titles in agriculture, architecture, chemistry, engineering and technology, earth and environmental sciences, life sciences, mathematics, medicine, physics and statistics. More information on each of these titles can be found in this catalog (see pages indicated). These titles join those published in the series earlier this year (formerly known as the Wiley Science Paperback Series).

Most American suburban housing was planned as a product, not as a community. This book examines the problems and challenges of suburban development and proposes a solution: the design of well-connected networks of open space linking the private world of yards to parks of all scales, from neighborhood playgrounds, to local, regional, state and national park systems, using greenways and streets that allow safe pedestrian and bike traffic.

Focuses on what is essentially suburban about the suburbs -- the networks of open space created in a landscape dominated by private yards and public streets and parks.
-- Examines the historical roots of modern suburbia and analyzes "classic" successes of new town design.
-- Explores new trends in suburban design like techno-burbs, eco-burbs, and pedestrian pockets.
