Trained as an anthropologist, Lisa Peattie became a community planner more by accident than by design. Her most formative experience was as a resident anthropologist in a squatter community on the margins of the “planned” industrial city in Venezuela, Ciudad Guana, with her first husband and their four children. In planning circles, she is especially well known for her writings on community advocacy. These, as indeed all of her writings, are grounded in first-hand observation; they are iconoclastic, critical, and compassionate.
