"A major contribution to the theory and practice of planning—an indispensable text for planners and for all those concerned about the future of democratic organizations."—David Held, co-editor, Classes, Power and Conflict

"A gem.
In fresh and original ways it illuminates the practical, political and bureaucratic dilemmas of professional city planning. It is a penetrating and provocative book and a wise one in many essential matters because it deals with the underlying operational reality on which all American city planning is based."—Norman Krumholz, Past President, American Planning Association (1986-1987)

"Full of insight and fun, Forester's book will direct students and scholars in creative directions."—Aaron Wildavsky, author of How to Limit Government Spending
