MEDIA REVIEWS
Congratulations to Leonie Sandercock on being awarded the 2005 Dale Prize, awarded each year by the Department of Urban & Regional Planning at California State Polytechnic University for excellence in a common field of urban and regional planning.
"Cosmopolis II captures the radical mood of the early 21st century and turns it into a positive project about living in multi-cultural cities. It will appeal to all those struggling with and studying contemporary cities. Beautifully written, clear, authoritative, and enhanced with evocative imagery, the book brings together new ideas, new literature, new cases and new arguments. It is likely to become a core text in the literature on cities and planning very quickly. No other book achieves the synthesis provided here."--Patsy Healey, University of Newcastle
"The most important book on planning practice of the late 20th Century. It will set the terms of debate for years to come"--Robert Beauregard, New School for Social Research, New York
"The best contemporary text for teaching planning history and theory."--Edward Soja, Planning, UCLA
"An extraordinarily comprehensive investigation."--Blueprint
"Sandercock's pervasive commitment and sensitive imagination provide a valuable inspiration to all those concerned with the quality of cities and their governance."--Urban Studies
"A book of passion and conviction about how cities are and what they might become. It is a challenge to all those whose professions are bound up with shaping the world's urban future."--City
