This 4th edition is the best-available compendium and analysis of planning theory. Remarkably, the editors manage to retain many of the foundational readings while also producing a volume that is overwhelmingly grounded in new scholarship. This expands the canon to show how theory can be inspired and produced by practitioners and scholars engaged with far more than the United States and Europe.

The current edition of Readings in Planning Theory follows in the now well established tradition of its predecessors, in deftly combining incisive editorial commentary with classic writings and contemporary thinking stimulated by the enormous challenges facing societies across the globe. It remains the definitive text in the field.
