About the Author

Sir Peter Hall is Bartlett Professor of Planning and Regeneration at University College London, and President of both the Town and Country Planning Association and Regional Studies Association. He has produced over fifty books since the start of his academic career in 1957. He is internationally renowned for his studies on all aspects of cities and regions. Colin Ward (1924-2010), often referred to as Britain's most famous anarchist, wrote nearly thirty books on subjects that ranged from allotments, architecture, town planning and self-build housing, to children's play, education, water distribution and anarchist theory.


Peter Hall has produced a timely update of his book with the late Colin Ward. With Government minds turning once again to the potential of Garden Cities and Garden Suburbs, it draws on his unparalleled experience as a strategic Ministerial adviser, academic, polemicist and planning historian to set out how that potential might be maximised. And he lays down a challenge to communities and individuals understandably worried by the scale of the housing development that is coming: learn from the past, join in a coherent programme, or you risk being swamped by a tide of the very sprawl that you most fear. - Martin Crookston, Strategic Planning Consultant
