Forty-five generous selections include contributions from Mumford, Jacobs, McHarg, Davidoff, and Harr through to Fainstein, Healey, Hoch and Beatley.The Reader lays out the context, range of concerns, history, methods and key topics for 21stcentury urban and regional planning. With a focus on the distribution of space and the distribution of place, the reader contains essays on housing, transportation design, environment, community development, the effects of cultural diversity and information technology on land use and other topics. It displays the techniques used to direct and control growth, including zoning, master planning, public budgeting and citizen participation. It explores different types of plans distinguished by their scale and reference type. It references analytical and presentation techniques and outlines ethical issues confronting planners.The Reader provides an essential resource for students of planning, drawing together important but widely dispersed writings. Editorial commentaries preceding each entry not only demonstrate its significance, but also outline the issue surrounding the topic, while the associated bibliography enables deeper investigations.Birch, Eugenie L. is the author of 'Urban And Regional Planning Reader', published 2007 under ISBN 9780415319973 and ISBN 0415319978.
