Contemporary Urban Planning, 12e provides students with an unvarnished and indepth introduction to the historic, economic, political, legal, ideological, and environmental factors affecting urban planning today. Planning is a highly political activity. Urban and regional planning decisions often involve large sums of money, both public and private, with the potential to deliver large benefits to some and losses to others. The extensively revised edition of this beloved text tackles the most pressing recent issues in urban development, including: current demographic, technological, and lifestyle changes and the possibility for a major turn toward reurbanization/urban revitalization after decades of decentralization; an expanded consideration of contemporary means of public participation in planning; the impact of contemporary social movements on planning, and the rising importance of social equity as a major planning objective; the affordable housing shortage facing cities in many large U.S. metropolitan areas; making cities more adaptable to micromobility; environmental goals and the role of planners in responding to global climate change, current publichealth challenges, and major environmental catastrophes; and the effect of varied applications of land use controls and other planning policies in different countries and under different political regimes, with case study examples from the UK, France, Eastern Europe, China, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This thoroughly updated new edition also benefits from resources to help classroom instruction, both in the text and online. These include discussion and multiplechoice questions, and links for students to online supplemental readings, websites, and media sources. Contemporary Urban Planning is an essential resource for students, city planners, and all who are concerned with the nature of contemporary urban development problems.
