In the last two decades Australian town planning history has become a well-worked sub-field of history bringing planning professionals and historians together in fruitful collaboration. This collaboration has been especially
evident at the Urban History/Planning History conferences held biennially since 1993. A key figure in the writing of town planning history and a regular participant in the conferences is the author of this book, Robert Freestone, who has also served as President of the International Planning History Society 2002-2006. His new book, Designing Australia's Cities, brings together some of his previously published work and new research in planning journals of the period to provide the first fully developed analysis of the City Beautiful Movement in Australia, 'an influential chapter in the history of 20th century urban planning'.
