With extraordinary skill he weaves the separate strands of planning of the last century into a rich tapestry that vividly displays its intricate links, perceptively portrays the foundations of today′s profession yet cleverly reveals the field′s enduring questions and concerns. To do this in one volume is a work of genius!" Genie Birch, University of Pennsylvania
