About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > In this lavishly illustrated, meticulously researched book, Richard White analyzes the city's planning and how it contributed to Toronto becoming a functional, world-class city. Focusing on the critical period from 1940 to 1980, he examines how planners sought to shape the city and the region amid a maelstrom of local and international influences and obstacles. Planning Toronto offers the first comprehensive explanation of how Toronto's postwar plans - city, metropolitan, and regional - came to be, who devised them, and what impact they had. As this definitive history reveals, planning matters - though perhaps t always as expected.
- Author Biography<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > Richard White is a Toronto historian and regular lecturer in Canadian History at the University of Toronto Mississauga. Now a recognized expert in Toronto planning history, he began his academic career with a PhD dissertation on the working lives of nineteenth-century Canadian civil engineers Frank and Walter Shanly, subsequently published as Gentlemen Engineers, and went on to publish several other significant works on the history of early Canadian engineering. He then served for several years as research director of the Toronto-based Neptis Foundation, during which time he developed an interest in the history of urban planning and began a long-term program of research into Toronto's planning history that continues to this day.
