The Just City in Times Higher Education

In the 18 November 2010 Times Higher Education supplement, Flora Samuel writes of Susan Fainstein’s book The Just City:

“Susan Fainstein’s book is the result of some 20 years of intense research and thinking on the subject of the ‘just city,’ and it seems likely to me to become something of a classic. It provides an introduction to a highly theorised world of planning; planning as social science, rather different from that of the people browbeaten by bureaucracy who I am used to dealing with in my local planning office. One thing that is notable about her work, though, is that it is not theory for theory’s sake. Her aim is to influence practice.”
