Cities, Citizens and Environmental Reform: Histories of Australian Town Planning Associations
Edited by Robert Freestone
Sydney University Press
Cities, Citizens and Environmental Reform tells a story of community involvement in the development of Australian town planning from the early 20th century - from the first wave of enthusiasm for modern town planning ideals before the Great War onto the more challenging social and political environment for the original town planning associations in the post-Second World War era.
Meticulously researched and peppered with archival illustrations, the book reveals common threads and local differences in community planning movements across the nation and contributes to our understanding of modern urban planning in Australia.
