Cities for sale: property, politics and urban planning in Australia

The issues dealt with in the following pages - the property power nexus of capitalist society, the growth ideology, conservation and public participation in planning - present a series of dilemmas on a local and national scale: whether a marxist model provides a comprehensive explanation of the present structure of Australian society; whether popular immediate solutions to planning problems are to be preferred to long term more expert ones, whether a combination of popular movements and representative institutions can outweigh entrenched power groups, and whether more participatory and redistributive policies will in the end enhance overall human welfare (a).
