From the Publisher:

Reflecting the author's many years' experience as a working planner, this text focuses on public planinng at the substate level -- that which is done by and for cities, counties, towns, and other units of local governments -- and examines much more briefly planning for metropolitan regions, the states, and the question of national planning. Throughout, it emphasizes politics, economics, ideology, law, and the question of who benefits and who loses by particular decisions.

From the Back Cover:

Based on the author's extensive experience as a working city planner, this book gives an insider's view of sub-state urban planning—the "nitty-gritty" details of the interplay of politics, law, money, and interest groups. It examines the underlying forces of growth and change and discusses frankly who benefits and loses by particular decisions. Offers full chapter coverage of crime and the criminal justice system. Discusses in detail the problem of homelessness and its links to housing markets and planning practice. Provides an update on international efforts to deal with the greenhouse effect, with an account of the Kyoto summit on the matter. Updates material on traffic management techniques. For city planners, social workers, and other state or municipal employees who need a reference on urban planning.
