The third edition of Readings in Planning Theory features thirteen new readings that define current debates and presents the works that constitute the main focus of the field, addressing the central issues that face planners as theorists and practitioners.
Expands the focus on international planning by including globalization and theories of development
Includes new readings that examine themes emerging in planning theory, including a critique of the modernist roots of centralized planning, a re-emphasis on space in planning, and a discussion of the difficulty of sustainable development
Features new case studies of planning success and failure on both sides of the Atlantic
Addresses the range of core planning theory so as to remain the primary text in urban planning courses
Examines the current state of planning theory and the new directions it has taken in recent years
Draws on a wide range of authors who address planning history, arguments for and against planning, competing planning styles, planning ethics, the public interest, and considerations of race and gender
"Readings in Planning Theory is comprehensive, balanced, and stimulating. Of great use to both teachers and scholars, it is without a doubt the preeminent collection in planning theory available today."
—Mark Purcell, University of Washington
"This trenchant volume succeeds in a vital way: it provides a framework for theories of planning that will enable planning students and practitioners to explain their chosen field much more cogently."
—Lawrence J. Vale, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Debates within planning theory define the nature of the planning activity. Through careful selection and thoughtful editing this substantially revised third edition of Readings in Planning Theory continues to be the definitive guide to the field." —Heather Campbell, The University of Sheffield
