Planning Theory for Practitioners

Michael P. Brooks

Planning Theory for Practitioners by Michael P. BrooksThis book is recommended reading for planners preparing to take the AICP exam.

Don't hold your nose or look the other way, Brooks advises planners, but use politics to your own advantage. Brooks admits that most of the time planning theory doesn't have much to do with planning practice. These ideas...

Planning Atlanta

Harley F. Etienne

Planning Atlanta by Harley F. EtienneSome cities avoid change. Others accept it. Atlanta pursues it.

More than any other major U.S. city, Atlanta regularly reinvents itself. From the Civil War's devastation to the 1996 Olympic boom to the current housing crisis, the city's history is a cycle of rise and fall, ruin and resurgence.

In Planning Atlanta, two dozen planning practitioners and thought leaders bring the story to life. Together they trace the development of projects like Freedom Parkway and the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library. They examine the impacts of race relations on planning and policy. They explore Atlanta's role...

Planning Chicago

D. Bradford Hunt & Jon B. DeVries

Planning Chicago by D. Bradford Hunt & Jon B. DeVriesUrban planning was born in Chicago, but today's city is not the product of Daniel Burnham or Mrs. O'Leary's cow. It's the Rust Belt metropolis that has shouldered its way onto the list of global cities. But what did planning have to do with it? Where did planning steer the city right, where did it fail, and where was it ignored? Most important, what does planning offer today?
