This is a set that brings together scholarly work on historical, conceptual, and technical aspects of the urban landscape. The role of landscape, as recreational, public, social, ecological, infrastructural and experiential component of the urban environment has been increasingly recognized during the past decade. The traditional conception of the `urban' as something that is made of streets and building facades has been replaced by a more complex notion that is inclusive of landscape as a generative and foundational component of the city itself.

As cities have continued to expand into metropolitan areas, landscapes have played a key role in the organization of urban territories. This set reflects the role that landscapes have played in the ongoing evolution of cities, from industrial to service based economies. Making readily available in one place materials which are difficult for scholars, researchers, and students across the globe to locate and use, this treasure trove of information includes global scholarship, supplemented with a comprehensive introduction by the editor which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context.
