Remaking the Urban Social Contract

Health, Energy, and the Environment

Toward making the city a better place to live

This new volume draws from provocative discussions on the urban social contract among policy makers, researchers, public intellectuals, and citizens at the 2015 UIC Urban Forum. Michael A. Pagano presents papers that emphasize political agreements, disagreements, challenges, and controversies on health, energy, and environmental policies. Authors explore the substantive and philosophical changes in the urban social contract and offer proposals for remaking it in the new century. Topics range from big-picture analyses to specifics covering areas like public services, the smart cities movement, and greening strategies.

Contributors: Alba Alexander, Megan Houston, Dennis R. Judd, Cynthia Klein-Banai, William C. Kling, Howard A. Learner, David A. McDonald, David C. Perry, Emily Stiehl, Anthony Townsend, Natalia Villamizar-Duarte, and Moira Zellner.

"A provocative and enlightening vision of our rapidly changing societal expectations for energy, environment, and health, the foundations of the social contract we implicitly make with government, corporate, and entrepreneurial leaders."--George W. Crabtree, Director of the Joint Center for Energy Storage Research
