PLANNING TORONTO: THE PLANNERS, THE PLANS, THEIR LEGACIES, 1940-80. Richard White. University of British Columbia Press, Vancouver, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Washington Press, Seattle. 464 pp. with 135 ills. 26 x 21 cm. ISBN 9780774829359 In English.
Publisher's description: Toronto is known for being the "city that works." 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 obstacles and a maelstrom of local and international influences. 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 not always as expected.
