Frankfurt am Main


Frankfurt am Main is the largest city in the state of Hesse (German: Hessen) in Germany. The city is often simply known as "Frankfurt" (in both English and German), although German speakers sometimes use the fullname in order to distinguish it from the other city of Frankfurt in Brandenburg.

Frankfurt am Main is an important financial center, and the home of the European Central Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange ("FWB"). The city was named as Europe's richest city in 2001. As of 2006, Frankfurt had a population of 661,877 in the city itself, and 5.8 million in the metropolitan area.

Product Description:

A cultural guide to this underestimated city where visitors often see little more than the airport and skyscrapers

Frankfurt is a city that punches well above its weight. Despite its diminutive size - it has fewer than a million inhabitants - it is a financial center of global importance, named alongside metropolises and capitals such as Tokyo, London, and New York. Yet Frankfurt is a city that is also continually underestimated: many of the millions who visit it on business - both German and from other countries - see little more of it than its airport and its skyscrapers.

The city's role in the global financial markets often obscures its importance as a historical and cultural center, not just for Germany, but for Europe and the West as a whole. In the Middle Ages, Frankfurt was the city in which the Holy Roman Emperors were crowned and in which, at the dawn of the Renaissance, a tradition of printing and publishing was established which lives on in today's Frankfurt Book Fair. The German language's most enduring author, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, was born in the city, and the university named for him gave birth to one of the twentieth century's most revolutionary academic developments, the Frankfurt School. Architecturally, too, the city has always been a pioneer: its famous skyline is only the latest and most visible in a series of bold experiments.

Frankfurt has always been a capital without a country: the capital of the book trade, the capital of modern social studies, the capital of the Eurozone. Today, it rivals Brussels, Berlin, Paris, and London, and yet retains a deeply provincial, down-to-earth identity interwoven with the thick forests and farming country of its Hessian hinterland. While its population is one of the world's most international, its dialect is one of Germany's most impenetrable. For those looking to do more than just change flights or sign a contract, this cultural guide takes a closer look at Frankfurt, exploring and explaining these dichotomies.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
Alternative Routes to the Sustainable City offers a unique and thorough analysis of three major cities and their individual paths toward sustainable development. Dr. Steven A. Moore investigates the exemplary cities of Austin, Texas, Curitiba, Brazil, and Frankfurt, Germany to examine how each city has approached and maintained sustainability, and thus stimulated economic growth, preserved threatened ecosystems, and improved social equity. These three cities have successfully developed different dispositions toward politics, nature, and technology, proving that there is no single abstract model or universal checklist but different approaches for different people. Incorporating interviews with the citizens themselves with current topographical research, Moore critically questions the relationship between sustainability and democracy. Alternative Routes to the Sustainable City is a necessary and pivotal read that will appeal to scholars of environmental studies and those interested in city development.
