about this item
Encounters in Planning Thought creates an informed future perspective on the planning field by looking at planning through the eyes of those that have been at the coal face of planning’s scholarly institutionalisation. The book provides a timely forum for those that have been central to the last half century of changes in the planning field to reflect on their intellectual changes to date and highlight potential future paths. It brings together contributions from leading planning scholars from Europe, American and beyond, including John Friedmann, Peter Marcuse, Patsy Healey, Andreas Faludi, Rachelle Alterman, and many more. There is no other publication that comes close to including such a wide array of quintessential voices in planning.
Crucial reading for those studying the theory and history of planning, Encounters in Planning Thought sets out a comprehensive intellectual, institutional and practical agenda for the discipline of planning as it heads towards its next half century.
