Media reviews
Reviews of previous editions 'Clear in structure, presentation and writing an essential text book which is both informative and provocative.' - Peter Booth, Space & Polity '[P]ossibly the most useful introductory text to the UK planning system in what has become a more crowded market. Where [it] scores over other works, however, is in the introduction to various theoretical contributions and! of the relations inherent in complex policy systems. This book possesses a dynamic which many of its competitors - often with dryer, more procedural approaches - fail to achieve.' - G. Vigar, Environment and Planning
