`This book will surely become the standard work on American city planning for all students of planning, government and politics.' - Peter Hall, University of California at
`This encyclopaedic book is a uniquely useful guide to the variety, flavour and language of US planning practice. Cullingworth's familiar clarity and exceptional transatlantic experience makes this essential reading for all interested in future possibilities for European practice.' - Urlan Wannop, University of Strathclyde
` … this well-produced, incisive and engagingly written book is likely to emulate the success of Cullingworth's other surveys of national planning policies. Lacking an obvious rival, it is destined to become a standard reference for anyone interested in American planning practices.' - Regional Studies
