Now in its third edition, this text provides the student with an introduction to planning. Peter Hall traces the evolution of urban and regional problems, planning philosophies, techniques and legislation, from the Industrial Revolution to the present day, fitting modern planning into its historical context. Particular stress is given to Britain but comparative chapters cover planning in Europe and the United States. Written as an introduction for both students of applied geography and of town and country planning, this book may be of interest to a wider audience keen to discover how cities have evolved.
