Editorial Reviews


'This is the textbook on achieving sustainable urban development that everyone has been waiting for.' Professor Sir Peter Hall, Bartlett Professor of Planning and Regeneration, University College London '...this book is recommended for its rigorous analysis of a subject which will preoccupy us for a long time.' Sebastian Loew, Urban Design Group Journal

"It is enticing to think that governance is produced in networks of stakeholders and that participants in those networks engage in processes of learning.  Likewise for the notion that new resources can be made available, conflicts resolved, and legitimacy for action gained in the process."  Bradshaw Hovey, University at Buffalo, USA
