Environment and Change, The Next Fifty Years.
Ewald, William R., Jr.
As the second of three volumes published in connection with the American Institute of Planners' two-year study program, this book offers realistic goals toward which urban planning must direct itself if human society is to fulfill its need and capability for advancement. It stresses the fact that the nation can no longer afford the haphazard urban planning policies of the past that have allowed land and resources to be wasted and have deprived people of amenities, services, and conveniences. Part I is entitled Creating the Future Environment and includes the future of man, the arts in modern society, and the roles of the spirit and technology in creating the future environment. Part II is A Future Filled With Change and discusses how technology will shape the future, an effective society, and planning with people. Prologue to the Future is Part III dealing with the culture of urban America, and a resume of planning accomplishments in the U.S. Part IV considers the Future American Society and the Future Role of the Individual emphasizing the development of administrative and political planning in America, the necessity and difficulty of planning the future society, and individuals in a collective society. Ending with Part V, The Context of the Future: Youth Technology, and the World, topics covered include technology and the underdeveloped world, and the mood for development. (BL)
