Product Overview

From Dreams to Disillusionment is the first book to cover the planning experiment of the 1960s in full historical detail, using newly-released government documents to explain the rise and fall of the idea. Other countries' planners made the approach seem successful; the appeal of rational, scientific, long-term blueprints attracted both Labour and Conservative thinkers. However, the experiment eventually failed, doomed to disappoint given unrealistic expectations, lack of time and an overburdened government.
