Urban and regional planning decisions often involve large sums of money, both public and private, with the potential to deliver large benefits to some and losses to others. Contemporary Urban Planning, 11e provides students with an unvarnished and in-depth introduction to the historic, economic, political, legal, ideological, and environmental factors affecting urban planning today, and emphasizes the importance of considering who wins and who loses in planning decision making.

Contemporary Urban Planning is an essential resource for students, city planners, and all who are concerned with the nature of contemporary urban development problems.

McEachern teaches by example. It is the text that uses examples and illustrations that students will recognize when they show up for class the first day because they already have at least 17 years of personal experience with economic choices, institutions, and events. Taking a just-in-time approach by introducing material just as it is needed to develop an argument, ECONOMICS: A CONTEMPORARY INTRODUCTION, Ninth Edition, truly leads by example. In a decidedly user-friendly tone, McEachern assumes that students are already intuitively familiar with many economic concepts through their own life experiences. These life experiences are then explained to students as economic concepts with clear and interesting exposition, relevant case studies, and a clean, focused design. The text’s major applications take the form of Case Studies that are meant to be read and therefore are integrated into the flow of each chapter. With this ninth edition, the book’s well-crafted approach is enhanced with resources--such as Aplia and CourseMate--that will help your students improve their understanding and help you streamline tasks and save valuable time.
