About this book

Examines the history, current practice, and needs of land use planning and regulation in the United States and argues that rational planning and controlled exploitation of natural resources are hindered by the fragmented jurisdictions of regulatory bodies at all levels. The new edition devotes greater attention to urban land use and related social issues with 2 new chapters tracing American city and metropolitan change over the twentieth century.
