Peter Marcuse at 80: His Extraordinary Contributions to Progressive Planning

Irazabal Zurita, Clara E.; Fainstein, Susan

Peter Marcuse is known throughout the world as a leading scholar and
practitioner of progressive planning, but he has also been an outstanding
member of Planners Network since it was founded in 1975. Peter is an attorney, a practicing planner and a teacher of planning. He is truly one of the most multifaceted, committed and productive planners anywhere. As
a devoted planner and educator, he has worked extensively inside and outside academia and government to promote the highest ethical standards for the profession. He has also been a consistent advocate for
social justice. The following review of Peter’s scholarship, teaching excellence and service in the field of planning shows how significant his contributions have been.
