The Oxford Handbook of Urban Planning is an authoritative volume on planning, a long-established professional social science discipline in the U.S. and throughout the world. Edited by Rachel Weber and Randall Crane, professors at two leading planning institutes in the United States, this handbook collects together over 45 noted field experts to discuss three key questions: Why plan? How and what do we plan? Who plans for whom? These three questions are then applied across three major topics in planning: States, Markets, and the Provision of Social Goods; The Methods and Substance of Planning; and Agency, Implementation, and Decision Making. Covering the key components of the discipline, this book is a comprehensive, discipline-defining text suited for students and seasoned planners alike.

Review:


"This is an 800 page compendium in urban planning. Three pages are required to list the 50 contributing authors and their affiliations, a good many of whom are well known scholars whose accumulated works over the years have helped to define the field implicitly. This,
in and of itself, is quite an accomplishment. The editors impose structure on their collection through a series of fundamental questions about urban planning. These form the 3 main pillars that hold the overall structure in place, and each chapter falls in line accordingly, more or less. For instructors teaching such a course for the first time, this compilation provides a viable starting point, and with successive iterations those instructors can begin to drop articles that they deem less pertinent while adding others, thus creating a unique hybrid of their own. It beats starting from scratch."--Journal of Regional Science
