This book defines the debates within the field of planning theory, identifies its boundaries, presents the works that constitute its central focus, and addresses the central issues that face both theorists and practitioners.This new edition brings the topic up-to-date and includes new additions on justice in the city and planning in a globalized world, as well as reflecting a renewed interest in questions of design, including the design of public space. Other selections have been updated to reflect emergent themes in planning theory, including changing approaches to themes of modernism, urbanism, communicative action, power, and inequality.
