Augustine, Saint, Bishop of Hippo.

The pilgrim city : social and political ideas in the writings of St. Augustine of Hippo / [edited] by R.W. Dyson.

Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK ; Rochester, NY : Boydell Press, 2001.

Abstract: The political and social ideas of St Augustine of Hippo are of central importance to the historian of late classical and medieval political thought: Augustine offers a penetrating critique of the moral and political claims of imperial Rome, and he is one of the founders of the Christian political thought of the middle ages. But the student's task is made difficult by the fact that Augustine did not write a single, systematic political treatise. His political remarks are always incidental to his theological and pastoral concerns; they occur in many different contexts; they have to be dissected out from a great variety of works. In this volume, Dr Dyson brings together an extensive selection of primary sources and provides a detailed commentary on them. The result is a full and wide-ranging narrative account of St Augustine's thinking on the human condition, justice, the State, slavery, private property and war. This comprehensive sourcebook will be of value to students of St Augustine at all levels. Dr R W Dyson lectures in the department of politics, University of Durham.

Abbott, Carl <1944->

City planning : a very short introduction / Carl Abbott.

New product ed.

New York, NY : Oxford University Press 2020

Abstract: City planning is a practice and a profession. It is also a set of goals and - sometimes utopian - aspirations. Formal thought about the shaping of cities as physical spaces and social environments calls on the same range of disciplines and approaches that we use for understanding cities themselves, from art and literature through the social and natural sciences. Surrounding the core profession of city planning, also known as urban or town planning, are related fields of architecture, landscape design, engineering, geography, political science and policy, sociology, and social work. Carl Abbott presents a brief but concentrated look at past decisions about the management of urban growth and their effects on the creation of the 21st century city.
