Overview

Webster (urban planning, Cardiff U., Wales) and Lai (economics, planning, and law, U. of Hong Kong) explore the strengths and weaknesses of the top-down and bottom-up approaches to city planning in cities and systems of cities that have recently adopted capitalism and are struggling with a culture of welfare statism and a sense that old forms of government no longer work. They argue that state and markets co-evolve, complementing each other and discovering by trial and error better ways of distributing responsibilities. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
