About this book

This is an authoritative collection of papers that are generally regarded as landmarks in the history of land use planning in the western world. A wide variety of leading articles have been selected for this comprehensive volume, which covers topics such as: urban form and urban dynamics; urban development and methods of urban analysis; land use planning methods and network cities and urban networks. The articles span both time and geography and will appeal to scholars and practitioners alike.

'The practices of land use planning are being given increasing attention these days in the challenge to create sustainable environments of high quality, available to everyone. This collection performs a valuable service in making available some key materials and debates about the concepts and practices of such planning.' - Patsy Healey, University of Newcastle, UK 'This volume is comprehensive in its coverage of decades of academic thinking about land use planning from both sides of the Atlantic. At the same time, the editors show fierce determination to focus on the main arguments. This reader is sure to eclipse other offers on the research resource market.' - Andreas Faludi, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands
