Brief summaries are then presented of the current state of the art in the fields of technology-city relationship, housing, transportation, planning and new towns, and urban information systems. Each summary is followed by the abstracts applicable to the topic. Most of the items abstracted were published since 1967. An author index is provided. (JY)
