The literature on regional planning deals mainly with the economic development of depressed areas and urban planning. Few works treat regional planning by businesses and few still explore its employment by the military. Regional Planning corrects this imbalance by providing a unique introduction to the study of region types and their use for planning and operational purposes. Written in clear, accessible language and utilizing over 70 illustrations, Dr. Branch describes the many types of regions, their use by various fields of study for different purposes, and their utilization by civil governments, businesses, and the military services. In addition, examples of current practices in regional planning are discussed as well as future potential.Branch, Melville C. is the author of 'Regional Planning: Introduction and Explanation - Melville Campbell Branch - Paperback' with ISBN 9780275925390 and ISBN 0275925390.
