MEDIA REVIEWS

"No text in the field of urban and regional planning better explains how we arrived at where we are."- Professor Michael Hebbert, University of Manchester, UK.

"Hall and Tewdwr-Jones's fifth edition of Urban and Regional Planning is of great interest to students and scholars of planning throughout the developed world. It places current planning issues within a sophisticated historical context, provides thoughtful commentary on the US and European experiences, and examines the planning process in relation to politics and spatial transformations. It deserves to be on every planner's bookshelf."- Professor Susan S. Fainstein, Harvard University Graduate School of Design, USA.

"The book provides a strong picture of the historical roots to the current urban form and planning practices especially in Britain, and helps respond to the need for general texts on planning theory and practice." - Michelle C. Kondo, Journal of Planning Education and Research
