Introduction to Cities by Xiangming Chen; Anthony M. Orum; Krista E. PaulsenThe revised and updated second edition of Introduction to Cities explores why cities are such a vital part of the human experience and how they shape our everyday lives. It examines the study of cities through two central concepts: that cities are places, where people live, form communities, and establish their own identities, and that they are spaces, such as the inner city and the suburb, that offer a way to configure and shape the material world and natural environment.

Introduction to Environmental Engineering by Alandra KahlThis book is intended as a reference for the graduate level scholar on selected topics and environmental engineering. Topics encompassed in environmental engineering include treatment of water and wastewater, mitigation of environmental hazards, and sustainable practice.
Principles of Environmental Thermodynamics and Kinetics by Kalliat T. Valsaraj; Elizabeth M. MelvinEnvironmental engineering, is by its very nature, interdisciplinary and it is a challenge to develop courses that will provide students with a thorough broad-based curriculum that includes every aspect of the environmental engineering profession. Environmental engineers perform a variety of functions, most critical of which are process design for waste treatment or pollution prevention, fate and transport modeling, green engineering, and risk assessment.
