Editorial Reviews

This book is meant to introduce students and laypersons to community planning. It does this very well…. [W]ell written and accessible…. Recommended. — CHOICEImpressively thorough. — Book News[A]ccessible, informative, and insightful. I highly recommend it and plan to adopt it for use myself in my first year planning class. It will also be a useful text for faculty teaching sophomore history and theory and for citizen planners, plan commissioners, and members of BZA’s who wish to be no ordinary planners. The casual clarity and visual vibrancy of the book exhibit a lifetime of teaching, practice, and personal experience in planning. — Journal of Planning Education and Research
