A fascinating collection. The book reveals concretely what still can be done, after factoring in all the pressures and conflicts, in our still very diverse cities today. It demonstrates the richness of comparative analysis in a globalizing world.
-- Peter Marcuse, Columbia University
The urbanists and planners in this book confront new realities of city life: new information flows, exploding urban populations, networks of cities stronger than the ties of nation-states, local traditions which are re-invented in the process of migration. The authors are mindful, however, that 'change' clarifies the past. The book is essential reading.
-- Richard Sennett, London School of Economics
Comparative Planning Cultures is an excellent book that makes a substantial contribution to both planning history and planning theory. It is also a must-read for anyone interested in the future of planning as a discourse. -- Nezar AlSayyad, University of California at Berkeley
