Harvey S. Perloff was director of regional studies at Resources for the Future, Inc., Washington, D.C.
“[A] rewarding collection of essays. . . . Part I deals with the nature of the urban community and Part III with the planning process and planning education. In the central part . . . [the essays] deal with the relationship of metropolitan politics to planning organization. . . . Questions are not settled, but at least they are raised and new perspectives are often presented.”—Public Administration Review
