Challenges the common misconception that planning under the Thatcher governments has simply been abandoned to market forces. On the contrary, the authors show that the interrelation of state and market is central to all current styles of planning. Market-led styles of planning are becoming increasingly dominant, while public-sector and community-based planning styles are more and more marginalized. The book presents six interesting and informative case studies, with a comparative analysis of their key features. -Publisher
