This should therefore become required reading for all those with an interest in the future of our cities.

'All readers, whatever their personal views, will find much to stimulate their thinking in this book. Its focus and relevance will help us think more clearly about important issues both in London and around the world.'
Steve Quartermain, Chief Planner, Department for Communities & Local Government

Nick Whitten, News Editor, Estates Gazette
