This book reveals the complex interplay of planning ideas and practices between local, national and international levels throughout this century.



The book moves from German 'zoning', the aesthetics of grand urban and landscape design from France and the USA, and the utopian English idea of the 'garden city' through to the dynamism of the Asian tiger cities and the environmental ideology of the late 20th century. It creates an international body of knowledge and expertise.



With case material from major cities in Western Europe, North America, Australia and Asia, this book charts the changing centres of influence in planning and identifies the cities which will lead the way in the next century.

Industry Reviews

"..well illustrated international narrative.." (Architectural Review, May 2002)

"...will be very useful as a reference volume enabling teachers and scholars to explore themes in city planning such as garden cities...another strength of the book is the economic, social and political background which is provided as a context for the evolution of ideas and practice..." (Geography, October 2002)

"...something of a tour-de-force...fluently and attractively written...an authoratitve voice on the subject..." (Planning History, 2002)
