Robert Freestone

Urban planning in today's world is inextricably linked to the processes of mass urbanization and modernization which have transformed our lives over the last hundred years.

In Urban Planning in a Changing World Robert Freestone and his contributors present a series of essays which address: the history of urban planning and its diffusion during the last century; the key paradigms which have shaped its development; the issues of urban reform on
which it has focused; the increasing involvement of planning with conservation and green issues; the concepts and concerns which are the focus of contemporary planning history and urban futures.

The book links past and future and provides a basis for the advance of urban planning into the new millenium.
