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.
