Contemporary Urban Planning
For introductory courses in urbanization, urban affairs, and urban problems.
Based on the author's extensive experience as a working planner, this book gives students an insider's view of sub-state urban planning the "nitty-gritty" details on the interplay of politics, law, money, and interest groups. The author takes a balanced, non-judgmental approach to introduce a range of ideological and political perspectives on the operation of political, economic, and demographic forces in city planning. Unlike other books on the subject, this text is strong in its coverage of economics, law, finance, and urban governance. It examines the underlying forces of growth and change and discusses frankly who benefits and loses by particular decisions.
