Planning for States and Nation-States in the U.S. and Europe

The Lincoln Institute of Land Policy has a new book out, Planning for States and Nation-States in the U.S. and Europe, that might be of interest.  Here are the abstract, editors' bios, and chapters:


Climate change, economic development, social justice, and community revitalization top the planning agenda in some European nations and U.S. states. The case studies in this volume follow the changes in international planning frameworks and the roles of national, state, regional, and local governments in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Oregon in the United States and in Denmark, France, Ireland, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom in Europe. The book is based on a symposium by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy; the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Policy at University College, Dublin; and the National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education at the University of Maryland.

Gerrit-Jan Knaap is professor of urban studies and planning, director of the National Center for Smart Growth Research and Education, and associate dean for Research and Creative Activity at the University of Maryland’s School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. 

Zorica Nedović-Budić is professor of spatial planning in the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Policy at University College Dublin, Ireland. 

Armando Carbonell is senior fellow and chair of the Department of Planning and Urban Form at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
