Postmodern social theory has provided significant insights into our understanding of society and its components. Key thinkers including Foucault, Baudrillard and Lyotard have challenged existing ideas about power and rationality in society. This book analyses planning from a postmodern perspective and explores alternative conceptions based on a combination of postmodern thinking and other fields of social theory. In doing so, it exposes some of the limits of postmodern social theory while providing an alternative conception of planning in the twenty-first century.
This title will appeal to anyone interested in how we think and act in relation to cities, urban planning and governance.

Industry Reviews

"Overall, this book is a welcome addition to recent debates on the relationship between social theory and planning practice, and provides a clarity of expression that is often missing from other texts that engage with this subject-matter. Stylish in design and layout, and thoroughly referenced, this book is a key text within the Royal Town Planning Institute Library series and would be a welcome addition for students involved in any way with urban planning.." -Jon Coaffee, Department of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, "Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 44(4), 577-581, 2001, 2001 "The work, none the less, provides us with a good and valuable introduction to the current theoretical discourse that illuminates academic debates within planning." -Edward Robbins "Architectural Review
