Review:

“The very prolific Center for Urban Policy Research at Rutgers University has produced another high-quality and timely work. Designed as a reader, the volume features contributions from well-known academics and practitioners who depict the latest trends in physical, social, economic, and policy planning... For anyone seriously interested in the direction (or lack thereof) the field of urban planning is taking, this book is essential reading... There is something for everyone interested in planning in this work. It is a definite contribution to the planning field and should take its place on the shelf of indispensable books in planning.”

—Ralph E. Thayer, Growth and Change
