    Older copy of "The Practice of Local Government Planning" ??

    My instructor gave us a paper that states to read the chapter in the green book called HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF AMERICAN CITY PLANNING. It is not however, in my copy, which is edition 3.

    Would any of you know if editions 1 or 2 have this chapter covered? I think i can find an old copy to purchase.

    Thanks much.

    1st Edition (1968) - Antecedents of Local Planning by James G. Coke

    2nd Edition (1988) - Historical development of American city planning by Laurence Conway Gerckens

    So it is the 2nd edition that you want.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    My Second Edition was copyrighted in 1979 and, I assume, published the same year.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.
