Encounters in Planning Thought creates an informed future perspective on the spatial planning field by looking at it through the eyes of those who have been at the coal face of planning's scholarly institutionalisation. The book provides a topical insight into why and how 16 distinguished planners, as they matured and built their planning ideas over the last half-century, have done what and when. It brings together contributions from leading planning scholars from Europe, America, and beyond, including John Friedmann, Peter Marcuse, Patsy Healey, Andreas Faludi, Judith Innes, Rachelle Alterman, and many more. Through these intellectual autobiographical essays, readers gain new insights into classic planning thoughts, on which the education of thousands of contemporary spatial planning scholars, students and practitioners is and was based.

There is no other publication that comes close to including such a wide array of personal information from quintessential voices in spatial planning. Crucial reading for those interested in spatial planning, including those studying the theory and history of spatial planning, Encounters in Planning Thought sets out a comprehensive intellectual, institutional, and practical agenda for the discipline of spatial planning, as it heads towards its next half-century.
