This book is a collection of published and unpublished articles written by the author during the 1960s which deal with both the body of knowledge of urban planning and the channels through which it is presumably implemented. Outstanding among the several themes which emerge from these essays is the inescapable need to examine and evaluate the function of cities and the role of city planners. Kaplan couches his discussions in terms of the past and present foci of the planning field, newer community roles for planners, and his own suggestions concerning policies and programs.
