Alfred Bettman, the eminent member of the bar, made many notable contributions to the sparse literature of city planning principles. But although his writings were numerous on many aspects of planning he never wrote a book on the subject.
These 24 papers, here for the first time assembled, cover the principal controversial planning issues down to this very day. The issues are dealt with one by one and yet in such a manner as to fit together as a composite statement. The book thus bears out Bettman’s own repeated insistence that park planning, major street planning, even zoning are not in themselves city planning, but only become so when integrated with one another in a comprehensive or master plan.
