1995. Item #A126
Gerckens, Laurence, comp. Proceedings of the Sixth National Conference on American Planning History. Richmond, VA: Society for American City and Regional Planning History 1995. 906p, many ills. Very good hardcover; no d.j. (probably as issued). ** Texts of over 100 papers delivered at the conference in Knoxville, TN, which honored the centennial of Lewis Mumford. A wealth of information is here on all aspects of planning in the U.S., England, and South America, from the influence of Prohibition on urban growth in Ohio to "perceiving and planning for air travel." With many sessions on Mumford and his ideas. Very heavy; shipping/handling will be extra.
