    Dr Eleanor Morris (Author)
Provides the principles of British town and country planning, how it has developed in practice and the results in physical urban design forms. The book is split into four parts. The first part gives an historical background of urban design and town planning, from the Roman Inheritance to the Industrial Revolution, the beginning of contemporary town planning, discussing Patrick Geddes, the linear architectural themes of Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius. The second part sets out the principles of basic town planning, based on a consensus after the Second World War. With a discussion of policies and techniques in the third part, the final section reviews the changes in the Thatcher era, and the re-emergence of urban design strategy in the 1980s and 1990s, ending with transformations in planning into the twenty-first century.
