Book Description: This is the urban planning "Bible" since it was first published. This fourth edition, extensively updated, brings it into the 1990s. "Comprehensive, theoretical and policy driven. A superb source for anyone faced with problems associated with land planning. The definitive book that takes the larger view of community growth, land use and environmental quality. Every planning student and agency should have a well-thumbed copy." - Philip R. Berke, Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, Texas A&M University.
