This book explores the transatlantic debates about city planning and urban sociology from the end of the Second World War to the present day.

From LA to MK and Back is a fascinating account of the influence of key planners, architects, sociologists and social reformers on how thinking about the city has developed over the last sixty years - from post-war reconstruction via new towns, problems of the inner-city, and notions of community, to 'edge city', urban renaissance and the new urbanism.
