This extensively revised and updated fourth edition of Planning in the USA continues to provide a comprehensive introduction to the policies, theory and practice of planning. Outlining land use, urban planning, and environmental protection policies, this fully illustrated book explains the nature of the planning process and the way in which policy issues are identified, defined, and approached.

This full colour edition incorporates new planning legislation and regulations at the state and federal layers of government, updated discussion on current economic issues, and examples of local ordinances in a variety of planning areas. Key updates include:

  • a new chapter on planning and sustainability;
  • a new discussion on the role of foundations and giving to communities;
  • a discussion regarding the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans;
  • a discussion on deindustrialization and shrinking cities;
  • a discussion on digital billboards;
  • a discussion on recent comprehensive planning efforts;
  • a discussion on land banking;
  • a discussion unfunded mandates;
  • a discussion on community character;
  • a companion website with multiple choice and fill the blank questions, and ‘test yourself’ glossary terms.

This book gives a detailed account of urbanization in the United States and reveals the problematic nature and limitations of the planning process, the fallibility of experts, and the difficulties facing policy-makers in their search for solutions. Planning in the USA is an essential book for students, planners and all who are concerned with the nature of contemporary urban and environmental problems.

About the Author:

Professor Barry Cullingworth was Emeritus Professor of Urban Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Delaware, and held posts at the University of Manchester, Durham, Glasgow, Birmingham, Toronto, and Cambridge.

Dr. Roger W. Caves is a Professor of City Planning and Director of the Graduate City Planning Program at San Diego State University (SDSU).

Review:

"This updated edition improves upon an already great planning textbook. Cullingworth and Caves, once again, provide a thorough, unbiased and high-quality overview of the most important debates in the field with sufficient depth and detailed information to give students entree to the actual practice of planning. The newly added sections on the impacts of Hurricane Katrina, shrinking cities, and sustainability expand the appeal and utility of this text in a variety of classroom settings." - Harley F. Etienne, Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan.

"Planning in the USA is an excellent comprehensive text as an introduction to the field and practice of urban planning and is exceedingly useful in public administration courses that focus on the complexities of managing urban environments. Like previous editions, authors Cullingworth and Caves address contemporary topics, policy advancements and new challenges of the profession in an understandable and insightful discussion. Topic themes are clearly presented and make this book a great choice for teaching undergraduate students" - Marie R. Wong, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Institute of Public Service, Seattle University, USA.

"The new material does retain both the clarity and personability of writing for which the book is highly regarded, whilst extending and updating the content.  The provocative tone towards planners' self-education is likewise continued in many places; not least this can be seen again in the chapter on sustainability, which challenges readers to locate themselves as part of the problem as well as in a position to support a more sustainable future." - Richard Dunning, University of Sheffield, UK.
