Top critical review
Out of date and over-long
on 21 April 2014
This book would best be titled 'A HISTORY of Town & Country Planning in the UK'. Even then, in 2014 it is now out of date.
I would suggest that if they are considering a 15th Edition Routledge would do well to have a qualified editor cull it and bring it significantly down in size. Restructuring might also be beneficial, if only to leave all that is obsolete in the first half, and provide an up-to-date practitioners reference guide in the second.
