About the Book :

This is the third set of volumes in the well known series entitled Concept's Inter-national Series in Geography. This multi-volume set has a wide coverage under the title Perspectives in Urban Geography. The earlier two sets in the series were: Perspectives in Agricultural Geography and Perspectives in Geomorphology. Traditional studies on aspects of Urban Geography had been concentrating on observational records of developments of towns and cities till the subject came to acquire a behavioral approach recently. What resulted was a new matrix of philosophies, methodologies and their ingenious application to what had been researched through the years. The present set of volumes ventures to make a rigorous survey of the literature on Urban Geography after its reorientation as it were. City Planning: Problems and Prospects is an informative, useful, readily applicable reference book on planning, programming, designing and constructing the built up environment. It introduces research scholars in the fields directly concerned with city planning to the scope, subject matter, challenges and opportunities of comprehensive city planning theory. These fields mainly include urban and regional planning, urban and regional studies, public administration system and civil engineering. The papers presented here represent comprehensive planning norms applicable to the present day situation and for the immediate future.
