Fritz Wagner (Urban Design and Planning, University of Washington).  Professor Wagner has co-edited a new book on livable communities along with San Diego State University professor Roger Caves.  Community Livability: Issues and Approaches to Sustaining the Well-Being of People and Communities (Routledge, 2012) explores what is meant by the term “livable communities” through the examination of case studies in selected cities throughout the United States, Brazil, and England.  Case studies presented demonstrate how cities have embraced the livable community idea and have moved forward with sustainable practices and policies, giving readers practical, real world examples of issues confronting community livability.
