"This is an 800 page compendium in urban planning. Three pages are required to list the 50 contributing authors and their affiliations, a good many of whom are well known scholars whose accumulated works over the years have helped to define the field implicitly. This, in and of itself, is quite an accomplishment. The editors impose structure on their collection through a series of fundamental questions about urban planning. These form the 3 main pillars that hold the overall structure in place, and each chapter falls in line accordingly, more or less. For instructors teaching such a course for the first time, this compilation provides a viable starting point, and with successive iterations those instructors can begin to drop articles that they deem less pertinent while adding others, thus creating a unique hybrid of their own. It beats starting from scratch."--Journal of Regional Science
