Comparative Urban Law is divided into a series of discussion topics, offering descriptions of the American response to specific urban problems and contrasting the American experience with approaches from other nations. Seeking to offer readers, including those with no experience in the field, a wide range of discussion topics to suit their interests, the selected subjects range from traditional planning techniques such as zoning and "smart growth" management systems to affordable housing, transportation, economic development, and urban revitalization. Other topics topics such as land use controls and land development laws in different countries are also included. This book also contains sufficient textual introductions and discussions of the topics so that the book can also be read by those simply interested in the field, or by readers searching for a lively discussion of contemporary problems. A teacher's manual is forthcoming.
