Editorial Reviews

Review

'A useful source of theories on sustainable urban development in the developed world' - Building

'It represents the most consistent attempt that I have encountered in a long time to rigorously analyse and codify the city - to make it understandable, for instance, in the way that Modernist city planning had rendered it.' - The Architect's Journal

'Presents the latest thinking on the benefits and dangers of higher density urban living.' - Plan

'This collection is a valuable antidote to the trend to offer simplistic solutions to complex problems.' - The Architectural Review

'Scholarly and well edited...It will also be used as a whole or in parts as required reading for tertiary coursework in schools of planning, architecture, and urban designThe Compact City is a significant contribution to achieving sustainable urban forms. It is also an excellent introduction to the complexities faced by the planning profession in a world seeking sustainable solutions to human settlements, and the role which can be played by urban design' - Urban Design International

'An exiting collection of critical reviews on the effects of the compact city policy...well written...will give the reader a worthwhile opportunity to grasp a major part of the picture.' - Town Planning Review

'The Compact City is a breath of fresh air, a rich compendium of readings.' - Hugh Barton, Environment and Planning B

'The articles that Jenks, Burton and Williams have brought together has become an exciting collection of critical reviews on the effects of the compact city policy ... The Compact City is interesting to read and gives the reader ... a worthwhile opportunity to grasp a major part of the picture'. - Gert de Roo, Town Planning Review

'The Compact City provides and excellent introduction to the complexities and opportunities of the urban designers task.' - Urban Affairs and Planning, Australia

'The Compact City is a significant contribution to achieving sustainable form.
