Meaningful places offer a vital counterbalance to the forces of
globalization and sameness that are overtaking our world, and are
an essential element in the search for solutions to current
sustainability challenges. In Native to Nowhere, author Tim Beatley
draws on extensive research and travel to communities across North
America and Europe to offer a practical examination of the concepts
of place and place-building in contemporary life. Tim Beatley
reviews the many current challenges to place, considers trends and
factors that have undermined place and place commitments, and
discusses in detail a number of innovative ideas and compelling
visions for strengthening place.
Native to Nowhere brings together a wide range of new ideas and
insights about sustainability and community, and introduces readers
to a host of innovative projects and initiatives. Native to Nowhere
is a compelling source of information and ideas for anyone seeking
to resist place homogenization and build upon the unique qualities
of their local environment and community.
