Urban Planning is a broad based field which seeks to apply systematic thinking and innovative knowledge to the problems of both natural and man-made environments. Planning involves using and interpreting government regulatory powers in a comprehensive manner to meet public objectives of balancing urban growth with the protection and preservation of our environments. Realizing that urban planning involves aspects of social policy, transportation, housing, economic development, and the environment, Stein created a text of classic readings that focused on all these areas of urban design. The majority of selected articles were drawn from academic journals, and a brief introduction or overview is provided for each chapter.
