Thomas and Fishman contribute to 'Planning Ideas That Matter'
Centennial Professor of Urban and Regional Planning, June Manning Thomas, and Professor of Architecture and Urban and Regional Planning, Robert Fishman, have written chapters for the book titled, Planning Ideas That Matter: Livability, Territoriality, Governance, and Reflective Practice.
The book, which has received the 2014 Best Edited Book prize from the International Planning History Society (IPHS), charts the trajectories of four key themes that have shaped urban and regional planning in both theory and practice: livability, territoriality, governance, and reflective professional practice.
Fishman's chapter focuses on "New Urbanism" while Thomas writes about "Social Justice as Responsible Practice: Influence of Race, Ethnicity, and the Civil Rights Era."
