The second edition of this innovative introduction to urban and environmental planning combines comprehensive coverage of institutions and procedures with detailed analysis of the economic and political context of planning, its historical development and competing theoretical approaches. Extensively revised and updated to take account of changes in the context and content of planning into New Labour's second term, extensive use is made throughout of case studies, summary charts and exhibits to bring the subject to life.

Industry Reviews

Reviews of previous editions 'Clear in structure, presentation and writing an essential text book which is both informative and provocative.' - Peter Booth, Space & Polity '[P]ossibly the most useful introductory text to the UK planning system in what has become a more crowded market. Where [it] scores over other works, however, is in the introduction to various theoretical contributions and... of the relations inherent in complex policy systems. This book possesses a dynamic which many of its competitors - often with dryer, more procedural approaches - fail to achieve.' - G. Vigar, Environment and Planning
