Planning the postwar Canadian city

This week, I was pleased to see my review of Richard White’s Planning Toronto (UBC Press, 2016) published in the December 2018 issue of the Canadian Historical Review. This is an important book for the history of urban planning in Canada, both because it explores in depth how planning regimes rose and fall in the country’s largest city, and because it challenges previous interpretations of the postwar modernist moment and its discontents. Read the review here.
