From the Publisher. Planner Alexander Garvin provides a concise illustrated overview of how planning works—the “rules” of the game, who the players are, what works and what doesn’t, and the activities that go into successfully transforming a community as exemplified by four cities and their colorful motive forces: Paris (Haussmann), New York (Moses), Chicago (Burnham), and Philadelphia (Bacon).
