|William Turner, The City (1961)|
- industrialisation: public health and pollution
- after World War II: planning
- late 20th century: sustainable development, internationalisation and neoliberalism
- 21st century: democracy, devolution and decarbonisation
Though I'm not sure I would agree with his claim that "industrial pollution and sanitation were easy victories with straightforward win–win solutions that often enjoyed broad political support", the piece is a concise and thoughtful survey and analysis of the subject.
