Do you like your community? The people of the world want a mixture of luxuries and material comforts, satisfying jobs, and economic freedom. The authors indict past and present community plans for their failure to relate the technological way of life to the things people want most. They show how community planning can begin with humanity's deepest desires and evolve ways of life which have human meaning in a world seemingly out of human scale. Extremely scarce, especially in dust jacket. This is our first time offering this title.
