Produktbeschreibung
This book discusses urban planning and regional development practices in the twentieth century, and ways in which they are currently being transformed. It addresses questions such as: What are the factors affecting planning dynamics at local, regional, national and global scales?

With the push to adopt a market paradigm in land development and infrastructure, the relationship between resource management, sustainable development and the role of governance has been transformed. Centralized planning is giving way to privatization, not only in the traditional regions but also in newly emerging regions of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Further, attempts are being made to bring planning related decision-making closer to the people who are most affected by it.

Presenting a collection of studies from scholars around the world and highlighting recent advances in the field, the book is a valuable reference guide for those engaged in urban transformations, whether as graduate students, researchers, practitioners or policymakers.

Rezensionen
"The book will certainly be of great value to students, researchers, and policymakers, as claimed by its blurb. Herein, students will get conversant with the latest in the field of urban and regional planning as impacting on development, researchers will be enthused to pursue projects on all-inclusive transformation of cities and regions, and policymakers will be sensitised to finding answers to the dilemmas over what to do or not to do." (Gopal Krishan, Economic & Political Weekly, Vol. 56 (28), July, 2021)

"The editors have accomplished a great job and have done the discipline a great service by bringing together such a powerful collection of writings and by organizing them so meaningfully. The book certainly adds to the existing body of literatures in the subject of urban and regional planning and development. It will benefit students, scholars, and professionals." (Srikumar Chattopadhyay, Transactions, Vol. 42 (2), 2020)
