Shelves: urban
Peter Hall gives a nice and detailed history of urban planning and design. It has a strong focus on the people in the history of urban planning but does not go in depth about the technology and characteristics of different planning and design theories. As a novice in urban planning I was hoping to get a bit more of the latter. Yet I enjoyed the book and might browse it again when I have improved my technical background.
