IUS Publication Reviewed in the Uniter | June 7, 2011

The forthcoming IUS book, City Planning as Ideology and Practice by Earl Levin gets a sneak peak in the University of Winnipeg newspaper, the Uniter. In his review Robert Galston writes:

“Levin’s speeches read like thoughtful but fairly informal essays…Levin’s speeches…provide great insight into the man and his time—when city planning would transition from big, top-down plans that focused on physical transformation and strong land use control, to the more mixed use, ostensibly ground-up and socially-oriented planning that took hold in North America by the end of the 1970s.”
