Review:

"This updated edition improves upon an already great planning textbook. Cullingworth and Caves, once again, provide a thorough, unbiased and high-quality overview of the most important debates in the field with sufficient depth and detailed information to give students entree to the actual practice of planning. The newly added sections on the impacts of Hurricane Katrina, shrinking cities, and sustainability expand the appeal and utility of this text in a variety of classroom settings." - Harley F. Etienne, Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning, University of Michigan.

"Planning in the USA is an excellent comprehensive text as an introduction to the field and practice of urban planning and is exceedingly useful in public administration courses that focus on the complexities of managing urban environments. Like previous editions, authors Cullingworth and Caves address contemporary topics, policy advancements and new challenges of the profession in an understandable and insightful discussion. Topic themes are clearly presented and make this book a great choice for teaching undergraduate students" - Marie R. Wong, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Institute of Public Service, Seattle University, USA.

"The new material does retain both the clarity and personability of writing for which the book is highly regarded, whilst extending and updating the content.  The provocative tone towards planners' self-education is likewise continued in many places; not least this can be seen again in the chapter on sustainability, which challenges readers to locate themselves as part of the problem as well as in a position to support a more sustainable future." - Richard Dunning, University of Sheffield, UK.
