Abstract and Keywords

This article examines the role of urban planning and regulation in addressing the challenge of the market. It argues that the shifts in state–market relations are important for understanding urban-planning discourses, which too often are isolated from larger questions of political ideology, global economic conditions, and geographical variations in national culture. The article also suggests that intellectual debates about the proper role of public planning in regulating private market activities are best understood in historical and geographical contexts rather than as abstract philosophical statements conducted outside the crisis-induced pressures of time and place.

Keywords: urban planning, urban regulation, market, political ideology, national culture, crisis-induced pressures
