Focusing on planning as a political practice, this book looks at the theory of state, of politics and of planning. The topics covered in this book range from neo-Marxist theory and the philosophy of praxis, to Max Weber and the rational state. The author argues that although planning must still be accountable, neither the domination of the market nor traditional post-war planning ideologies are acceptable in the 1990s - that a new agenda and a major rethink of planning from first principles is required.

Part 1 Planning practice and political theory: planning practice; political theory. Part 2 Assenting theory: Max Weber and the rational state; pluralism, the game and the rules; neo-corporatism and the organic state; neo-liberalism and the strong state. Part 3 Dissenting theory: neo-Marxist theory and the philosophy of praxis; critical theory - state politics and rationality; political theory, the state and planning.
