About this book


From Dreams to Disillusionment is the first book to cover the planning experiment of the 1960s in full historical detail. Other countries' planners made the approach seem successful, however, the experiment eventually failed, doomed to disappoint given unrealistic expectations, lack of time and an overburdened government.
