Urbanization, everywhere, is of pressing concern to society. It is now appreciated that politicies for urban growth cannot be confined to the cities themselves, but mus extend outwards to include both the city and its surrounding areas. Britain, with the help of North American experience, has since 1965 pioneered new approacheds to the city in its regional dimension. These contributions are examined in this book. Its essential merit is that it shows how planners think, and describes assumptions and the nature of arguments used when determining the form and characteristics of future urban environment in England.
This book was first published in 1972.
