The author’s classic text focuses on the development of cities and how they have been planned and managed through the ages. The tie between land use and municipal administration is explored throughout. Topics include the roots of city management and planning; physical and socioeconomic views of cities; how city planning works within city government; the ties between planning and city politics; zoning and urban design; new towns; and regional planning. This work is the culmination of the author's long career in planning practice. His involvement in government, business, and academics means this book relates to a wide variety of fields. And the author writes in a clear, nontechnical style. Whether you're a city official, a professional, or a concerned citizen, you'll find this a cohesive, readable, and authoritative introduction to the field of planning.
