Thread: History book on land, ownership, development?

    History book on land, ownership, development?

    I'd appreciate it if anyone could recommend a book that gives the U.S. history on the progression of land ownership, development, how zoning came into being, etc. I thought this might be something that might come from an introductory planning course.

    I recommend the following, I believe it has the exact perspective you are looking for.

    Platt, Rutherford H. 1996. Land Use and Society: Geography, Law, and Public Policy. Washington, DC: Island Press.
