Hodge (formerly Queens U. and Simon Fraser U., now a private consultant) and Robinson (emeritus, U. of Calgary) have drawn on their combined years of experience to produce this substantial volume on Canadian regional planning. The book devotes an initial chapter to the history of the field and continues to include historical background as it describes the many details of the profession. They conclude by outlining their planning strategy, one that integrates the physical, economic, and natural environments. This will be an essential reference for professionals and graduate students.
